Currently I have a flash drive plugged into my computer, however no autoplay action is fired and the drive does not show up in My Computer. However, in Disk Management I see the drive and can use it by manually typing in the mount letter into explorer (E). Any idea as to why this is happening?

I have two HDDs mounted as C & D.

Solved this on my own, apparently my past self hid the E drive from my computer using the "NoDrives" registry key. Deleted the key, problem solved. For more information on the NoDrives key, see here.
