Hello, I have just bought my first mac, and got a macbook pro. I have downloaded certain software such as VLC and have noticed what appear to be disk drives/virtual disk drives on the right hand sde of the desktop under the hard drive link. These are quite large and I have downloaded several programs that have these. I tried deleting them, but then the application wouldnt start and I tried dragging the disk drive to 'applications' but this made no difference once the desktop link was deleted. Is it possible to get rid of these icons at the side and keep the program running properly? And if so how please? I have tried looking through guides, but with no luck. Please help! I hope I have been clear in what I mean, but will be happy to give more details if needed. Thank you, Thomas Goodall.
