    Phantom hardware


    I have a Lenovo laptop with 2 ssd installed no cd installed. I go to drive management and I have a cd with a dvd mounted with 3.9 GB showing I can open a command prompt and get a directory listing.

    That's a Windows ISO image mounted as a virtual DVD. Since Windows 8 you do no longer need third party apps to mount ISO images as virtual drives. If you double click an ISO it will be mounted and is seen by system as a DVD disk in a DVD drive.
