Windows 7: Windows Explorer does not show disk partition letter

Windows Explorer does not show disk partition letter

I am installing Windows 7 32bit on a Macbook Pro 13' 2010 model (2.4Ghz) (250GB HDD).
I have a system partition (C:\ 20GB) and media partition (D:\ 156GB). The latter is not visible in the windows explorer (refer to the attachment) but is accessible by typing 'D:\' on the address field. It is also visible in the disk management.

Anyone has the same problem or has a solution??
Thanks.

Hi,

Does it show up if you enable Hidden Files, Folders and Drives?

It could also have something to do with the exFAT file system but i'll look into that

The following report states exFAT as Mobile Personal Storage

exFAT File System

It could be treating the drive almost like a USB/Removable storage

Tried to enable hidden drives but does seem to help and I discovered one thing: when i change the disk letter from D to something else, the partition immediately shows up in the windows explorer but then when i revert that and partition goes missing again..
