Windows 7: New Windows 7 Pro system not showing SD card drives & Networked Drive

New Windows 7 Pro system not showing SD card drives & Networked Drive

We have several new windows 7 machines. On 1st time startup we were seeing (in "My Computer") Drive C, Drive D, 5 Removable drives. We joined to our domain...all good. I could now see Drive O on our domain.

Here is the problem. Now I don't see the 5 removable drives (SD card slots) or my Drive O.

I know I'm connected to the O drive because I have the ability to edit files and the SD card slots are working.

I tried changing the folder options to show empty folders etc...but nothing is working. I tried re-booting a few times but nada.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

have you checked your GPO's? There may be a GPO that is causing this.

stpbby, thanks for the response.

I tried enabling the add-on for Group Policy and checked the "Hide these specified drives in my computer" (tried show all and tried disable) no luck.

Also tried to enable "Always wait for the network at computer startup and login" no luck

Any other ideas?

Do you see the drives in disk management?
