    Hi...

    Over the last few days, when I restart my laptop, I'm getting a windows
    message stating that it has detected new hardware, a DVD drive, and
    wants to install the drivers for it.

    The thing is, there is only one CD/DVD drive on my laptop, it's already
    recognized and appearing under device manager....

    Where is this new drive coming from, how do I get it to stop appearing
    every time that I boot?
