File Options on windows 7
the produced error is "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action... " . I suspect the cmd on the top of device options (right click)

Windows knows cmd.exe but not just cmd.  Change to use cmd.exe.

I cannot reproduced this list above. How did you get it?  When I double click on a hard drive, another Explorer window opens.
