    hello forum, i've been lurking for a while and learned alot however i've stumbled on a strange annoyance that i can't figure out.

    one of my dvd drives has been automatically renamed and i can't change it. right clicking doesn't allow it to be renamed and managing drives and changing the drive letter to something else and then back doesn't seem to work. it doesn't affect the functionality of anything but i'd rather it not be there. can anyone help?

    Hmm bizarre, try going to device manager and removing both the "DVD RW Drive H: and rebooting.

    If its the 4in1 disk part then it could be a CD that was in the drive and the CD was labelled that. Sometimes when you eject a CD the label doesn't clear, have you tried rebooting?
