Ok hears the deal........AFter I got my new rig up n runnin bout 4 months ago, I PLAYED AND PLAYED F.E.A.R like there was no tomorrow :D 
I even left the game cd in my drive E: all the time. LOVE THE GAME

Anyway, now that I have played it 2 times, I notice that even after I remove the game cd, the cd rom in "MY COMPUTER" is STILL calling itself F.E.A.R E: :?

I have tried to RENAME it in performance and maintenance section, I have tried to do it in MY COMPUTER, but when I right click the drive, it does not give me the option to "RENAME" like it does to HDDs

Can anyone shed some light on this?? :? It's not causing me any problems or anything, just a lil annoying is all.

Any help would be appreciated muchly :wink:

Normally this just goes away by itself after a reboot or 2 without the cd in the drive.

If it still doesn't go away, make sure you have no cd emulation software running, like AnyDVD, Daemon Tools, Nero ImageDrive, etc, even InCD. They can cause crazy shit like that. Then Reboot.

If still no go uninstall your cd-rom driver in device manager and reboot. I would be very suprised if its still there after that.

Cheers.

Apparently your Sony CD drive likes F.E.A.R. more than you do. :lol:
