Hey guys! i wanna know what you make of this attachment. It came up some weeks back and av been unable to delete it from my system. When I put in my Lightwave Flash drive, it is no longer recognized as a removable storage device under 'My Computer'. Even when I have no Flash drive attached to the computer opening 'My Computer' always shows the two false devices F & G. The only way I can access the contents of my Lightwave flash drive is if I open MS Word or Adobe depending on the format of the document I want to view from the flash. When I try to open the false Drive I am instructed to insert a CD in the drive. Its all perplexing! What do you guys figure it to be. It does not seem to affect my use of my computer in any way though. I use Avast free Anti-Virus, and am also unable to scan the false drive and device, it just sends me an error message 'Scan completed with error-'the system cannot find the path specified'.

Does the drive work fine on another computer?
If it does. then right click the drive and choose format.
Then start the process. THIS WILL ERASE ALL FILES ON THE DRIVE. Make sure you have a backup of all files you need before proceeding.
