Ok so Im useing XP Pro Service pack 2. I installed a DVD Drive on my PC and
it kept showing that it was 2 drives rather than 1 which got annoying so I
uninstalled the Driver from my tower and my Device manager... But it keeps
popping up! It continues to show an F drive under My computer when there is
no F drive and the DVD drive icon wont leave my Device manager screen. When
i try to uninstall it from there and restart it says it found new hardware...
I sure would love to know how since it hasnt been in the computer for over 3
months.

Can anyone shed any light on this situation? please its rather annoying

Did you physically disconnect it or just try to remove it from Device
Manager?
