Drives no visible ?

Hi.

I cannot see my drives, when I want it to, as shown in the screenhost.

What is the reason, that the other drives are not visible ?

Thanks for the fast reply. Ok with the desktop view.

But if I open Explorer, I cannot see the drives either, and I have been able to B4 :-)

Open Explorer, go to folder options and look under the view tab for a Hide empty drives in the Computer folder option. If it is checked remove the check mark from the box in front of it.

OK, thats great, to be honest it was just a shot in the dark and I was doubtful it would work. Sometimes you just get lucky I guess.
