My question is this, I had to have my computer reloaded with a new drive because of virus and then my c drive couldn't be removed from my computer, so it's still there but not connected. When i try to download Realarcade it will go to my f drive but when i try to reload a game i had it will say i don't have enough room on my drive and that's because it is reading the c drive that's no longer connected. Any suggestions? :whistling:

Hi! And Welcome to Geeks to Go! I hope that you will take a little time to investigate all the resources here.
I am somewhat confused about your system configuration. When you say that the old (C:\) drive is not connected, do you mean that it is actually without a cable that goes to the motherboard? Does the old drive show in "My Computer?" Why could the old drive not be physically taken out of the machine?

Thank you. Correct it's not connected to the motherboard and yes it shows in my computer. It was attached to the inside of my tower and the repr person didn;t want to bend it so we left it.

I am even more confused. If it is not physically attached by a data cable to the mother board, then how does it show up in "my computer"?

So you are saying it is still attached? I'll say this it only has space 4.40mb and the size is 7.35mb.

I think that it is important to get a better understanding of your system's configuration. There are several excellent "Info" programs. I very much like SIW (System Information-Windows) It is free, and requires no installation. When you download it, save it to your preferred location. Once saved, just double click the green SIW logo, and more information than you know what to do with will become availble quite quickly. In the left-hand panel, scroll down to hardware, and then click the + in front of "Devices." Do the same for the now visible "Disc Drives." What is showing there? A click on an item in the left-hand panel will present everything that SIW can find out about it in the right-hand panel. Feel free to examine any information you want in SIW. It makes no changes, only reports what it finds.
