One option to configure that is on the RDP client - options - local resources- local devices and resources - more...

The other are the settings on the server - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770631.aspx

It should be enabled on both sides.

Run tsconfig.msc –> right click RDP-Tcp –> Properties –> Client Settings-> redirection->disable the following: drive
If you check that you will disable drive redirection.
