When you click on them does a window come up where you can click on the properties at the bottom of the list? If so look there to see what it says. I am assuming you have used a USB flash drive in the computer and did NOT do a stop on the drive from the icon placed in the taskbar before removing the USB drive.

Check and make sure you don't have one of those card readers on the front of your computer. These would appear as drives in MY COMPUTER. The card reader I am referring to is those that read the SD cards from digital cameras, etc... If you do have a card reader, then these extra drives are normal and shouldn't be removed.
