Looks like a removable disk. You might know better, since you have the physical access to your PC.

There are two icons besides the DVD-RAM. These icons are generally seen when you attach a removable disk such as pen drive, or usb drive.

What about a USB stick or card reader or some other extra device that's plugged into you PC?

Try getting some information from Disk Management, or Device Manager.

I'd start by counting just what you have got plugged in there

I use USB Safely Remove from when there was a free version available and this lists exactly what I have connected at any one time.

You might want to check if you have two partitions in your USB drive.

I am having the same problem & there is NO thumb drive to blame it on. It's like the computer partitioned itself automatically. It is a small partition (about 6 GB). It doesn't seem to bother anything, but I am curious as to where it came from. Has anybody else (besides the original poster) had this problem?
