Default No Folders in Win7-Explorer

Hi guys,
i'm facing an issue when my N5 is connected to my Win7 laptop.
It doesn't show any folder. Instead every folder is displayed as a file.
So i'm not able to browse them.
(see attachment).

On my Win7 PC everything is working properly.
So i assume it's an issue caused by Win7 but maybe some of you do have any advice for me.

thanks a lot!

Try a different driver set. Install Wug's toolkit for the drivers, do some Googling for device manager, and manually installing drivers.
