Windows 7: Disc Explorer in XP Mode

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Disc Explorer in XP Mode

In XP I got accustomed to creating different shortcuts for Windows Explorer. In the properties box I would modify the Target to C:\windows\explorer.exe /n, /e, d: which would cause Explorer, in this example, to open directly to drive D.

I can do this in XP Mode but I don't know how to make it access the drives available to Windows 7. Does anyone know how to do this? I'm certainly not locked into using Explorer - I would use any utility that would do the job.

You can try this shortcut, which opens and shows all the drives:

%systemroot%\explorer.exe /n, /c, ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
