Ok, lately(at least i think it's never been there) I have noticed in My Computer where it shows my hard drive the the other drives, one of them is labeled BD-ROM drive. I know this is blueray drive. However I don't have a blue ray drive. Just the DVD drive,which is also labeled there too. I tried hitting eject and nothing happens. It has pretty much the same hardware properties as my DVD-rom drive. I thought maybe it was maybe a virtual drive, cause I do use PowerISO sometimes, but it's not. Any ideas?

Moeror-

I use Daemon Tools for drive virtualization, and I experience the same situation. It has to do with the program (uninstalling Daemon Tools got rid of the drive). It shouldn't cause any problems, but unfortunately I don't think there's a way to hide it. Lame.

On a related topic, I have an inaccessible Q: drive, which i believe results from Office 2010 Beta. Anyone know how to get rid/hide it? :)

I had this problem too and was baffled. The reply above about Daemon Tools was useful though, but you don't need to uninstall Daemon Tools. From the Daemon Tools app you can find and remove the loaded volume which is appearing as a mounted drive. Sorted.
