Do you mean remove it in software or remove it physically?

Which operating system are you using? If it is Windows, you can remove a drive in Device Manager. Find it under CD/DVD Drives, right click on the listing for the drive and you get the option to uninstall it. Reboot and the operating system will find the “new” hardware when it starts again. This may not solve your problem however.
