<b>Yet another problem from me, I'm falling apart this month what can I say?!<br /><br />Okay the problem has been plaguing me for a while and I'm in a fix everything mood. I have two hard drives in my computer, an 80GB and my newer 250GB. When I installed my 250GB, I had already burned aynthing i needed from the 80 to DVD's to just transfer over. So the 80 has been sitting dormant in my computer lately and I found a problem when trying to access it today. Both have WindowsXP installed on them.<br /><br />When I boot up the 80GB, it brings me to the log-in screen because my old roommate was a little...untrustworthy...so I put a password on the log-in. However whenever I boot up the 80, my keyboard disables, therefore, not allowing me to Ctl+Alt+Del into the password screen, let alone type the password. The problem lies in the fact that because it's password protected, I can't get to my pictures/music/videos from the older hard drive, but I know more are on it as at home I got to it once or twice.<br /><br />Any suggestions on what I could do? I would like to in the end be able to use the 80 as just another storage space instead of having it boot. And I want to get the info off of it before I run a reformat of it (if that's even what I have to do).</b>
Alright all it took to get the mouse and keyboard working was to plug them into other USB ports. So I can get into the 80GB and transfered everything I wanted, but now I want the 80GB to be a separate drive, not a separate bootable drive if that makes sense. I want it to serve as an extra 80 gigs of hard drive space. At the moment it's just serving as a totally separate bootable drive. So what do I have to do to get it formatted as another storage place?
