    I hope someone has an idea how to fix this because I just finished installing all of my software on a fresh install of Windows 7.

    I just saw that the CD/DVD drives are missing from explorer. They are functioning perfectly, the autorun works and if I put a disc in the drive suddenly appears. This is also affecting the Alcohol virtual drives as well. I didn't notice this before installing Nero 9.4.26.0 but I think they were still visible after installing Nero. The only thing that I installed after Nero were some games, Crysis, Bioshock, Wolfenstein and Red Faction Guerilla.

    I have already tried these:

    - removing all entries from the upper and lower filters
    - uninstalling the drives from device manager.
    - uninstalling Nero.
    - reinstalling nero.

    It was the option to show all folders in folder options that was unchecked. This wasn't enabled before and I thought the DVD drives were visible. Anyway they show up with this option checked.

    Hide empty drives didn't seem to do anything with CD/DVD drives
