 'GHOST' CD-ROM drive just appeared....(LONG)

Ok, here goes....

I have a Dell Latitude C600 at home using a Dell C-Dock II
Expanded Docking Station (containing a USB 2.o PCI
interface card) running Windows XP Pro.  I have the
following drives setup on my system:

C Drive - Primary Hard Drive - Internal to Laptop
D Drive - Secondary Drive - USB 2.0
E Drive - Plextor 16X CD-RW - USB 2.0
F Drive - DVD-ROM Drive - Internal to Laptop

I had several directories on my D Drive shared out on my
LAN, mostly for LAN parties or {*filter*} interests.  
Yesterday, I went to the Windows Update Site and
downloaded all the patches for XP Pro and installed them.  
Now, under My Computer, the D Drive has moved to G and
there is a third CD-ROM device that appeared.  I checked
Device Manager (including the Hidden Devices Option) but
can't find any such device.  Also, if I try to share out
the directories on the G drive (New Letter Assigment for
the D Drive) then it gives me an error stating the share
already exists.  Any ideas as to removing that CD-
ROM 'GHOST' driver and restoring my data drive's letter

Similar Threads rom drives don't appear in explorer and have problems

Dear people, 

All of a sudden I can't detect my cd rom drives in
explorer and the control panel, system, device manager
has a yellow question mark next to it.  When I click on
the drives this is the error I get:

Windows cannot start this hardware device because its
configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete
or damaged. (Code 19)

Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this

Can anyone get back to me by either email or through this
post and tell me how to fix my problem?  Thanks.
