Help please.
I just recently built my first computer. I installed a new 150hard drive as my MASTER and a used 200GB HD with data already on it as my SLAVE drive.
The problem is with the slave drive,the computer recognizes it in My Computer as the E: drive but I cannot open it. When I try it says; The Disc Drive E: is not formatted do you want to format it. Also from Disc Management the drive shows as active. And at the top it says 128GB 100% free even though it is 200GB. I cant see the other 62GB of term papers research material, music and photos..
I cant imagine whats happening, any takers.
Thanks.

Welcome to GTG.

This should probably be asked in another forum. OK, what Operating System are you using? I assume XP since you are using disk management right? Do you have SP1 installed? I think that 128GB limit is there if you don't have SP1. Probably should get SP2 if you don't have any computer problems (like viruses or spyware).

That should be it. So check and see if you have XP SP1 installed.
