Hi phillpower2,

 

My new Windows 7 installation is working well.

 

I believe that Windows 7 and higher does not allow my 2 DVD-ROM drives to be shown along with C drive and other disk drives as part of "Computer" when in Windows Explorer.  (I remember that Windows XP allowed this feature.)

 

It is not a problem since both drives work fine.  I only thought that Windows 7 would show them both, but it doesn't.

 

Other than that, everything is working well.  Thank you again for your help in the installation of Windows 7 and the required drivers.

 

Cheers!

Hello Jackpine,

 

I believe that Windows 7 and higher does not allow my 2 DVD-ROM drives to be shown along with C drive and other disk drives as part of "Computer" when in Windows Explorer.  (I remember that Windows XP allowed this feature.)

 

 

Did mention this along with a suggestion back in my reply #27 in response to your reply #26;

 

Windows XP always showed CD ROMs D and E in Windows Explorer under Computer.  Windows 7 doesn't.  Is that how it's supposed to be?  

 

 


From memory as long as there is no disk in the drive yes that is how it is meant to be, same as my Windows 10, you can always create a shortcut for each drive on your desktop.
 

 

 

Other than the above it looks like all is well and thanks for letting us know  :thumbsup:
 
You are welcome btw  :)
