Default Strange CD drive problem

Hi,
have just installed 10.04 on a friends machine. Machine had win7
did an install using complete hard drive , but when up and running,
shows there
to be a CD already in the drive . Double clicking phantom cd icon show
the contents to be a
number of windows executables (Blue diamonds). Ejecting the CD removes
the icon, but when cd
tray closes, the icon re-appears. When another cd is placed in the tray
it can be accessed,
but when removed the phantom CD re-appears when the empty tray closes.

Any ideas as to why this is happening, and how to permanently remove it
would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Take care
Winton

Maybe you're seeing a Win7 restore partition. Take a look with gparted.
