"My Computer" section does not refresh

Hi,

Weird bug here , when i go in "My Computer" i cannot see my BD rom anymore, it's installed and it's there in device manager: working properly. Also, if I put a usb drive, i see in the bottom right corner that it is installed but i don't have access to it via "My Computer".

I did try to uninstall and reinstall BD drive with no results.

Thanks for helping out

Mart

Fix it says there is no problem.

The drive itself is detected, I can see it in device manager.

The thing is that i can't access it via "My Computer"

Weird thing is that I have no Lower or Upper filters in the registry.

Haaaa fixed it !

My bad, I mapped a new network drive and selected the same drive letter as the BD drive itself, all good now.

Sorry for wasting you're time !
