Help! For a few weeks I've been getting delay/write error messages which have been 'cured' by rebooting, however after doing that today my d drive isn't showing as being present on XP (my comp or system devices). the missing drive is a seagate 80gb
My spec is XP pro/1 gb RAM/3gb P4/5 hdd (inc the missing one)
double check that all of the connection are secure, liek the ones from the IDE cable to ther motherboard etc. However, this sounds like a failing hard drive, you might want to see if you can access it through the commanbd prompt.
Click on start | Run | type cmd.exe | then when that shows up, type (without the quotes) "cd d:\" This should take you to the root of your D drive.
