I probably made this drive to create a virtual environment in VMware. Now I have removed the Ubuntu virtual machine from VMWare & I want to delete this DVD DRIVE E too. How do I do so?


The option to delete volume is disabled in Disk Management.

    Please edit your question to indicate if you, mounted the disk, from within Windows. Difficult to submit an answer, indicating what you should actually do, without that vital information. – Ramhound Mar 16 at 11:14
  • okay, thanks! I will take care from now onwards. For now: problem solved by @harrymc's answer. – Manvi Tyagi Mar 16 at 13:46

This is probably an ISO file that you have mounted as a volume, and which you cannot delete using the Device Manager.

The tool to use is Windows Explorer: Right-click the drive and click Eject:
