Windows 7: Disc Explorer in XP Mode

27 Nov 2009   #1

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}

explorer.exe crash when inserting disc
I'm running build 7100. It happens pretty regularly and only when I insert a data CD/DVD. As the system recognizes the disc, I get a message saying - Windows Explorer Has Stopped Working. I greatly appreciate any help I can get with this.
