    Ok, so since I've had my computer, I've had 4 extra removable drives listed in my computer.
    1. When acsess they do not exist.
    2. When removed with the remove drives safley utility they come back at next startup, but they do not afect performance in any way.
    3. When USB slots are filled with drives, they are just not used and lay there as usless as can be.
    They just seem unecessary and i just want to get rid of them, any ideas?:confused:

    If you have a built in memory card reader, then these are for the different sizes and formats that can be used.
