When I installed alcohol 120 it added a third cd-rom drive to my computer, in order to emmulate images i burned to my harddrive. Maybe you have a similar emulation program, if not, i have no idea what the problem could be.

Like Maddogsdhs said, it's probably a virtual cd-rom. If you only have 2 cdrom drives in there, maybe a program you installed created a virtual cd-rom drive. It shouldn't be a problem, unless you're annoyed by it for some strange reason.

If you want to get rid of it, you'll probably have to search through your programs and see if any are creating a virtual cdrom for some reason.
