i'm at home from college for a couple of weeks and i'm trying to fix my parents computer. the d:\ and e:\ drives were accidentally deleted a few months ago when windows xp was installed and i can't figure out how to get them back. when i put cds into those drives, nothing happens...it's like they've been turned off (so i can't put in the original windows xp cd and reinstall windows). they don't show up when i open "my computer" either. i searched microsoft.com and found some information about editing the registry, but i'm a little bit nervous to do that because i'm not an advanced computer user. i also downloaded and unzipped "cdgone", but i'm not sure if that's what i should use because i'm not exactly sure what the problem is. if any of you could help it would be greatly appreciated.
