    I've tried right clicking and safely removing it, then renaming the f drive to e. Yet when I restart it doesnt help any suggestions

    It looks like it needs to be formatted.

    It looks like you forgot to tell us what it is in the first place. USB stick? Card reader?

    1.) Go into the Device manager and select view for showing hidden devices.

    2.) Uninstall all hidden USB DEVICES and STORAGE VOLUMES, reboot.
    3.) If the problem is still present, uninstall all hubs, reboot.

    Windows is still very dumb regarding its USB management while caching drivers and pretending to chose the best known driver once it troubles itself up with USB devices.
