comment Phantom flash-drive repeatedly appearing on my Windows 7 system, how to remove?
Only one bluescreen implicated Cisco IP Communicator. The others give no executable. All give DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and stop at a very low address like 0x0D. The device automatically reinstalled itself while I had the computer up and I had to uninstall it again, during uninstall, got another bluescreen.

Reboot and it first hung with "_" in upper left corner of black screen, tried again and it blue screened at login with DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL STOP 0xD1 CipcCdp.sys, tried again and I login fine, but the Ricoh device is back and beeping again, I uninstall it again and it gets errors and beeping only goes away this time when outer one is uninstalled (not the leaf).

I managed to find it listed under Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System -> PCI bus -> Inter(R) 82801 PCI Bridge - 2448 -> Ricoh Memory Stick Controller -> Ricoh Memory Stick Disk Device. Once uninstalled, the flickering ceases! I also uninstalled the parent node, Ricoh Memory Stick Controller.

Exactly as described, but it refreshes continually making it really hard to do anything.

Yes always flashes in and out. The device manager keeps collapsing all and re-expanding as the device comes in and out, very annoying. Device name is 'Ricoh Memory Stick Disk Drive'. Because of the open close repeatedly, I can't find the item in the view devices mode.

The network connecion fails, a ps shows nothing running whose name includes inetd, and netstat -a does not show the port being monitored.

Executing /usr/sbin/xinetd gives no output and a zero status result. Should it give any output or does it just silently start up?

This didn't work, but led me to a solution (posted as an alternate answer). The URL itself is not drag-able for me, but the icon to its left is.
