I have a master drive running XP and I placed a slave drive on windows 2K, however the master will not see it eventhough it shows in BIOS. I need to retreive data from the 2K drive before I reformat it. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. :whistling:

It does show up but there is no letter attached to it. If I want to assign a letter to it...it will not let me. It is greyed out. I am unable to post a screen shot because it is on a different pc

From within Disk Manager, is the drive "initialized?" Without a drive letter being assigned, I am thinking that it may not be initialized.
