: I had used this 20 gig harddrive under both Windows 98 and ME. My bios was changed to detect the second harddrive awhile ago. That is what is so perplexing: it was there under ME and 98, but it's not there now. I even went as far as reformatting my C drive and just installing 98, in hope of backing up D, E, and F before reinsalling XP. But when I went back to 98, D, E, and F were no longer there!
: As far as disc manager, that is simply the only place I can see that XP knows about the second drive. My only option that it gives me there is to repartition. But I'd really rather not lose my data. Suggestions?

Study the "primer on hard drive recovery" article at (some downloadable utilities there may help solve your problem):

You may be dealing with a hardware problem bad HDD, bad cable, bad connection, bent pin, bad controller or ... Download and run the HDD maker's diagnostics.

Good Luck,
