    Can't remove DiscSoft Virtual SCSI Device


    Hi there

    We had this machine when we trying to plugin the USB drive into this computer. The disc won't show up in the Windows Explorer. After further troubleshooting and found the drive letter has been A-Z by the majority used by the DiscSoft Virtual SCSI Device (almost 20+). Then we checked on the Devices and Printers in Control Panel and we found almost 65 devices listed under DiscSoft Virtual SCSI Device.

    So we removed one by one from this Devices and Printers and then reboot the machine. After the reboot, we can use now the external USB drive BUT when we checked the Devices and Printers (Control Panel) still showing 65 devices. ?!?

    Any ideas how to remove this completely? Or how this might happen?

    Just give you a background:

    1. Apple MAC running on Windows 8.1 via Bootcamp
    2. No virtual disc app installed ie. Daemon or PowerISO etc etc.

    Thank you

    We found this solution.
    Accidentally when browsing device in Device Manager and found DAEMON software (virtual disc) under Storage Controller.

    Disabled this device and check on Device and Printers under Control Panel and this list of virtual disc is gone.

    It looks like the DAEMON was installed previously and removed BUT didn't remove the drivers.
