Hi,

Im trying to install some software and it requires to be mounted, so im using daemon tools lite to do this. Ive had no problems in the past with this but for some reason, it comes up with "You already have the maximum number of drives." As far as I'm aware, ive only got expression web installed on a virtual device and one other thing which is now uninstalled.

So how do I add virtual devices?

Would really appreciate some help :)

Ive followed the steps to get to device manager through control panel. It appears that these are the virtual drives which have problems, so does my CD Drive too. when I uninstall the virtual devices, they reappear as soon as i click "scan for hardware changes". so i cannot delete them.

Try uninstalling the drivers for the virtual drives.

Try Joeten method first. If that don't work go to "Device Manager" under the virtual drives go to "Drivers" then click on "uninstall" make sure to tick the box "Also delete the drivers"

ive uninstalled daemon tools now and the devices on device manager have now gone, so i guess it could be something to do with daemon tools. what other programs would you recommend that do the same thing?
