View Full Version : XP SP3 Drive Icon Problem

30-03-2009, 04:16 PM
Hey guys n gals,

I am running XP SP3, All latest updates/patches.

I have recently noticed a small problem,
in "My Computer" a drive icon "Cd Drive (H:)" has appeared,
although it isnt a cd/dvd drive (I have Installed 2x Asus DVD+/-/R/RW Drives -Both detected and working)
I am just wondering how to fix this icon.
Im thinking run/regedit and deleting drive "H:" :stare:

Any help would be appreciated

You sure its not part of an internal card reader / or a USB flash drive?

Nope, no usb drives connected, and no card reader connected (internally or externally) =S

What else is in the case?? 2x dvd, how many hard drives?

What happens if you double click on it??

Does it open / say it needs something? Says it isnt formatted?

if the Icons have gotten all screwed up - two things you can try -

1. Download TweakUI (http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/repair-icons-windows-xp-using-tweak-ui/) - follow instructions from this site

2. Download and run ShellIconFix (http://windowsxp.mvps.org/shelliconfix.htm).

2x IDE Hdds, 2x IDE DVDs & 1x Floppy. (all drives being correctly detected and functioning)
"Please Insert Disk Into Drive H:"

Thanks Guys
