My computer ceme with Windows ME. I upgraded this to Windows XP proffessional. I installed a second hard drive to my computer and formatted it. I then had drive C: @20 Gig(original drive), and drive E: @40Gig(new drive).
All was well untill my computer got a virus which i couldn't get rid of. I tried installing Norton Anti-virus, but every time i tried to run it my computer shut down. To get rid of the virus i had to use the master CD supplied with the PC to reboot the system from scratch with windows ME, and then re-install Windows XP again. Now Norton works fine.
The problem i have is that now i don't have my 40Gig hard drive. My device manager is listing the drive and trouble shooting shows it as working properly, but if i go through windows explorer it isn't listed. In fact i can't find it anywhere.
I have tried shutting down, removing the drive, and restarting the system. This removes the hard drive from the device manager list, but when i refit the hard drive and turn the unit on again plug and play finds it but lists it as before. Can anyone help me.
Many Thanks. Pelvis
