Default Extra DVD drive????

For some reason, Windows XP is detecting a DVD drive I do not have! I have a cdrw(Master) and a dvd drive (slave), and those work fine, however, there is a third "G:/" drive labeled DVD!?

Could this have somethign to do with me installing alcohol 120%?????

Gateway Machine - I know...I sold out...if I could do it over I'd have built like I used to :(
MS Vista Premium 32-bit
AMD Phenom (9500) Quad-core Processor 2.20 ghz
500GB hard drive
2 Free PCI-E slots x1
1 Free PCI-E x16

it is very possible, try uninstalling alcohol and see what happens. someone else had similair problems as you.

to correct the problem if it turns out to be alcohol you must turn off the virtual drive features, i have no clue where these options are found. it may be an option to not install the virtual drive feature when you install alcohol.
