    I'm having also the exactly same problem, when I add a virtual drive I here the sound that a new device is detected, but I don't get a 'new hardware found' screen or something.
    The virtual drive isn't shown in 'Computer' and not listed in device-manager.
    Also when I'm trying to change the drive letter from none to i.e. 'F:' I get an error...
    I'm running Windows Vista HomePremium x86, is there any solution for this?
    And what do you guys mean with the above things?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    As far as i heared its a vista problem. the cd driver is corruptet.
    so just a repair/reinstall of the os would help.
    damn i hate to reinstall systems

    Found the solutions, this is what I've done:

    1: Copy cdrom.pnf; cdrom.inf and cdrom.sys from %WINDIR%\System32\DriverStore to %WINDIR%\INF (overwrite any file that allready exists).
    2: Delete the infcache.1 file in the %WINDIR%\INF folder.
    3: Uninstall DAEMON Tools (if it's installed)
    4: Reboot you're computer
    5: Install DAEMON Tools, and you're drivers should be displayed in 'Computer'

    I hope this helps, I worked for me anyway

    Regards,
    Tim

    When I go into windir\system32\driverstore I have 3 folders in there. en-us, filerepository, and temp. In which one of those folders can I find those files? cuz I have checked in en-us and I found the files, but also in the filerepository there are folders that are named those files.
