: : 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,

Thank You Henry, I will give that utility a try.
