HI and Welcome to Apple Discussions...
*They removed a folder called m4ptomp3 from the startupitems folder in the Library Folder, but no such folder exists that I can see on my computer*
Look here. System Preferences/Accounts - Login Items. Delete the "virtual cd-rw" if it's listed there.
*folder in the Library Folder, but no such folder exists that I can see on my computer.*
That folder exists. Here's the path. MacintoshHD/Library/StartupItems.
You could try a program called App Zapper
or App Delete

Thank you! However, none of those things worked out. Under the Accounts pane of System Preferences I looked at the login items, however it was not listed.
Unfortunately, that folder does not exist. Yes, the folder "StartupItems" does exist, but when I look into that folder nothing is to be found, even when I configure Finder to show hidden files.
I did try App Zapper again after re-installing the program, but it proved ineffective as well, even when it deleted a .plist file.
I found a way to remove the icon from the top menu, but the virtual cdrw drive is still on my computer, and random windows pop up once in a while that tell me I've inserted a blank disc.
To remove the icon from the menu, you can simply just hit command+click, hold down the mouse button, drag it off the menu over the desktop, and let go of the mouse button. It should go away.
But I still have the virtual drive, and it is incredibly annoying. No one seems able to help me, so I guess I'll live with it. This is why PC's win.
I did it.
Try going to http://www.ahamediasoft.com/help-center/quick-start.htm and re-downloading the software.
Download it and then install it. In Finder/Applications there should be a folder for M4PConverter. This folder should come with an "Uninstaller" file. Run the uninstaller.
I did this, then checked my disc utility and it's now gone from my computer!
