Flash card reader - how to hide inactive drives letters?

My flash card reader shows multiple drive letters (one letter for each card type), even when cards are not inserted. Is there any way to hide these inactive drives?

"Windows 7 has the option to hide inactive drives until a media is inserted. So, solution - upgrade to 7?

Alternatively, if you are going to stick with XP, you can use the TweakUI Powertoys to hide drives from appearing in Explorer. Subsequently, use the Desk Drive utility to show the drive on your desktop when media is inserted.

Long time ago I used THIS TOOL to hide drive letters of inactive drives. Worked fine for me.
