Right click on that folder and choose 'Hide This Parent'. Repeat this until your drive is the top of the hierarchy. You may have to restart Lightroom after that.

What do you mean? This procedure should make that drive appear as a drive again, rather than as a folder. And you just confirmed that it worked...
