Wow!!!! thanks for the fast reply, I knew the community on this forum would help me rock this one, I really appreciate it!!!

Funnyly (made up word) enough I did think of this first yesterday. I figured i couldnt do it while I had the device connected, and I knew that while not connected the device would be hidden from the USB list. so I followed the instructions posted here:

Uninstall Drivers from Vista & Windows 7

to add a view hidden items options to the view menu in device manager. I removed the driver for the android device but it didnt help.

here are some screen shots of what i have in my USB device list.





here are some other pictures to give some further context:

here is the "device" in devices and printers, it seems to be broken (yellow triangle) but troubleshooting does nothing. windows seems to think it is a printer.



here is my HD (goflex) listed under files. you can also see that it has a keyboard, mouse, etc listed under it.



and here you can see the remove hardware right click screen, you can see my harddrive greyed out under it.



I have also tried the 3rd party program USB Disk Ejector, but it also doesnt help.

Thanks again for the quick response and further help. I really appreciate it.
