I installed a new HD in my DELL Dimension 4100 desk top computer and also put the old HD in as a slave. I've already set the jumpers and both HD's are on the same ribbon. The bios recognizes both drives but windows does not recognize the slave drive. Only in windows explorer search can it be found in the Look In Window drop down.
Local Hard Drive (C:)
3 1/2 Floppy (A:)
Local Disk (C:)
Compact Disc (D:)
Could not change the drive letter in device manager. How do I resolve this issue?
The reason for installing the old HD as a slave is because it wouldn't boot windows. The problem was bad FAT32 partition. I want to retrieve the files from this drive. Is this possible and how?
Thank you in advance for your assistance!
