    Don't worry. This is not a big issue so you can easily fix it by making some changes to group policy. This kind of problem occurs when some program affect your group Policy. To fix this issue, follow the below given procedure:
    • Open Run by pressing windows + R
    • Now type gpedit.msc and press Enter
    • In the left pane, click on User Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, and Windows Explorer.
    • In the right pane, right click on Hide these specified drives in My Computer and click on Properties.
    • Select Disabled or Not Configured and click on OK.
    • Now close the Group Policy and open my computer.You would be able to see all hidden drives.

    pen Device Manager (Windows 7):
    • Select Start from the bottom-left corner of your screen.
    • Choose Control Panel.
    • Select the first option called System and Security.
    • Select System. In this window there should be a general overview of your computer.
    • On the left hand side there is a list and near the top is the Device Manager. Click on this and it should list all the components installed on your computer.
    Or press Win+R on the keyboard, type in devmgmt.smc and press Enter. Check is there any yellow exclamation point next to a device in DVD/CD-Rom drives part. It means that Windows has identified a problem of some kind with that device.
    If they are, right click on that DVD drive and select Update Driver Software…. Select Browse my computer for driver softwarein master dialog. In the next dialog manually point path to C:\Windows\inf. If Windows wants an information file, point it to cdrom.inf or mshdc.inf and click the Next button.
    Usually you should get a driver found message or some-thing about the best driver already installed. If not, delete the file C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\infcache.1 and try it again.
    If that still doesn't work, check in device manager the DVD drive for installed drivers (right click on the invalid drive, selectProperties, go the the Driver tab and press Driver Details button) - there has to be the following drivers installed:
    • cdrom.sys
    • storprop.dll
    • redbook.sys
    Also check if your virtual drive has a drive letter assigned. Right click on DAEMON Tools Pro Agent icon in the system tray and select Virtual DevicesVirtual device nameDevice Parameters…. Select a drive letter from Drive letter drop-down list.
