    How do I delete a drive that doesn't exist? In the "my computer" screen it
    shows drive f (removable media) and it is now longer in my system. It was an
    external HP CD writer and I removed it recently.

    A cd writer is not removable media. do you have any flash card readers on
    your system or anything plugged into your USB ports?

    Did you remove the device from device manager? how was it connected? did
    you "safely" remove the hardware, even so after a reboot it should be gone.
    Is there software controlling a virtual CD device for "drag and drop" cd
    burning?

    if you had read the OP properly you will have realised that it was an
    "external" cd writer

    My DVD-ROM, DVD burner, and CD RW are all shown as devices with
    removable media.

    Should be uninstalled from device manager before removal.
