I got a hard drive about 2 months ago. It's a 100gig 7200RPM western digital Internal EIDE. I installed it with out too much trouble, It's installed as primary slave. A day or so ago I was working and the folder names started coming up gibberish in Explorer, I rebooted to see if it would fix it but instead I could not access the drive at all. It appears in the drive listing but when I try and access it I get an error "D:\ in not accessible. A device attached to the system is not functioning" No application can access it. I ran the diagnostics programs that were on the bootable diagnostics diskette that came with the drive. They reported no errors. I would have just tried reformat the drive, but there is about 20gigs of stuff on the drive that I need. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also when I rebooted I was downloading files from a sharing network to the drive, large video files, I donít know if this could be any part of the problem but thought I should include it just in case.
