HP Printer creates false drive

Discussion in 'HP' started by no_one@no_where.invalid, Aug 9, 2010.

  1. This is an odd one. There has been an unknown drive with removable
    disks showing up on my computer. I can remove it in "safely remove
    hardware" The printer is an All-in-one J6450. If I unplug the
    printer the unknown drive goes away. I am guessing it is the card
    reader in the printer that is showing up as a drive. I wonder if
    anyone else has had this happen? If so were you able to correct the
    problem. I went to HP help page looking for an answer but that is a
    real abortion.

    The removable disk drive showing up in My Computer is the card reader
    built into the HP printer. In other words, printer, computer and
    Windows are all bahving normally by showing it... Ben Myers
