For what reason, I don't know, I can't access my C [Windows Harddrive] or my E [DVD Burner] from my computer. I can access them by typing "C:\" or "E:\" into the address bar, and they'll show up then, but underneath everything else. Then, when I close the window, and reopen My Computer, they are no wheres to be seen. Is there some kind of setting that's messed up, and where do I fix it at?

I'm pretty sure there is a setting where you can view system files and such but im not sure where. depending on what OS your using )I have Windows XP) then it might be in the tools toolbar, hit folder options, hit view, and look in there

umm, no idea, sorry. im not a computer genious but when it comes to having a problem I learn fast by just screwing around with stuff I know won't mess anything up. just look around and if it still doesn't work you might just have to put C:\ whenever you want to view the folders. good luck

I don't mean to sound ungrateful or whatever but.. That is what I've been doing for about a month now, if I had a better plan of action I wouldn't be posting asking for help.
