Hi. I am using Vista 32bit and I noticed that the dvd/cd drive does not show on the right side of the window explorer window, only on the left side. is there a fix for this so that the dvd/cd will also show on the right side?
thanks. pix attached.

You will find that the most simple things are over looked.

I thought that was rather obvious considering the cd/dvd drive isn't fixed media...

I couldn't tell you how many times I done that lol ... My favorite was when I spent a half hour trying to get a white spec off my monitor, only to realize that it was a glare from the window in my office lol ...
