Windows 7: Windows Media Player don't recognize some of my drives (Windows 8.1)

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Windows Media Player don't recognize some of my drives (Windows 8.1)

I want to browse my music etc via Media Player, this works fine for one drive, but not two others that I have. I can see them perfectly fine in explorer, and I can "open with" on files and start them with Media Player with no problem. They just don't show up from within Media Player.

All drives are NTFS nothing in disk management tells them apart, so weird that only one of them is recognized.
