    Too many CD/DVD drives shown in File Explorer


    I have one DVD drive, with no DVD in it, yet File Explorer shows three drives, each with files in them. How do I get rid of the two phantom drives and get rid of the phantom files in the real DVD drive?

    You probably mounted an ISO file and Windows mounted as a virtual drive. Just Right click on it->Eject
