    IIRC, those would be the cam memory or memory card, and you may want the drive letters so you can acess that stuff later...

    Are you using Windows XP? If so, you can reassign these drives to driveletter Y and Z or so.

    I believe you can also delete drive letters in computer management, but I am not sure, I don't want to try out, to be honest. You get a warning popup from Windows upon deletion, but in your case it's safe to ignore it (I think)

    Computer management can be a pain in the rear. I have moved letters, not gone into deleting them yet. I would rather be a safe and cowardly individual than having to spend hours correcting problems.

    Try double clicking on the safely remove hardware icon on your taskbar (Near the clock) and remove the digital camera (It may be listed as a USB mass storage device) from the list.
