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.

On the right hand side click the wee downward pointing arrow beside Devices with Removable Storage
 
I am learning something everyday about Vista. Thanks a lot. :)
 
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...
 
you are right. sometime we think of something technical but it's a simple a-b-c... :)
 
i had exactly the same issue, i even drastically downgraded to xp, as i thought something was wrong, only after did i learn my folly.... :)

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 ...

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
