Default unwanted cd devices showing

Installed Alcohol 120% so as I could use the mount image facility. Created 4 new virtual devices to mount these images, however they have appeared as Physical devices and Ive had to create 4 new virtual devices. How can i delete the 4 physical devices which appear as cd-roms. Ive tried device manager but when I reboot they reappear.

Thanks

Stu

Default Re:

Hello,

You need to go into the Alcohol 120% program, then go to File> Options> Virtual Drives then set the Number of Virtual Drives to 0. There are also some additional settings you can set within options, which affect the management of virtual drives.
