    The same thing happened to my Laptop when I installed Alcohol 120%, even though I have a DVD-ROM on my laptop, another one appeared.

    This also happened when I installed it on my computer and I don't have a DVD Drive on it.

    You might have installed a program that creates a DVD Drive on your storage?

    Alcohol installs a virtual drive - for your illeg-I mean legal-cd image burning pleasure.
    The virtual drive is used for mounting cd images so you can run them at 200x speed. It is really pretty cool.
    There should be an option to get rid of it somewhere if you don't like it.

    An image is all the data on a given cd put into one file. Not unlike a zip file.
    When you burn an image of a cd onto your hard drive, you can mount it.
    Mounting it is just like burning the image on your hard drive to a cd and using the cd.
    Mountung is much faster though and is a favorite of hard core gamers.
