Default Removing A Drive in My Computer

Not sure why "My Computer" shows an A Drive (3.5" floppy), I dont have this and never had w/ this OS and build. How do I remove this? I've gone into the disk mgt setting in the control panel, but only the HD's show up there.

Thanks!

Default Re: Removing A Drive in My Computer

Here's how I did it on mine:
Right-click on A: drive, Properties.
Hardware -> click on A: drive,
Click Properties, then use the drop-down menu to "disable this device".

Edit: Wow I didn't realise I was over a hundred posts already O.o
