As far as I can tell, this is the only problem.
They are both there, not missing in Windows and I know the hardware is good, as I have a spare hard drive with a backup copy of WinXP and all is well when I swap that hard drive into the system.
I regularly use ad-aware and spyware blaster and I think that maybe I accidentally deleted something that I shouldn't have.
The problem is, I don't know what. I used Norton Win Doctor and it says everything is fine. System information and Control Panel also show no problems. I tried removing the drives and reinstalling them, but again, no luck. They show up in My Computer as drives D: and E:, but they either say the disk is not accessible, or 0 bytes, or just a blank disk.
CDGONE patch is no help either.
Also, I don't see anything in the restore portion of Ad-aware that looks suspicious to me.(but what do I know?, I screwed the thing up to begin with!)
