Look at the left area. There's double entry for the removable drive "CROSSGRAVE" but the other other one has different icon and when you expand it, it will show the icon for the removable drive. What might be this one? I don't understand why it is displaying another entry for removable drive(flash drive). but when I look at explorer by pressing win + E. It doesn't show this one.

I have a flash drive that displays similar characteristics.

In my case, the second entry is the flash drive also pretending to be a USB cdrom. It does this so that you can automatically run programs when the flash drive is inserted into the computer. So the second entry would be that of the pretend CDROM.

I think it's mainly U3 drives that have this 'feature'. –  Hello71 May 31 '10 at 2:50
