I'm not in front of Windows 7 right now so I can't direct you specifically but if I recall correctly this just has to do with the folder not being attributed as a music folder (I may be incorrect).

Can you right click the root directory folder and hit Properties. One of the final tabs in the Properties window should allow you to set the folder as a Music folder. Can you select that and hit OK?

If not, can you take a screenshot of the Properties window?
