I've done a good deal of reading through forums already and have yet to arrive at a solution. Here's what I've got so far:

I have 2 drives used for data storage in addition to my boot drive. That means I have 3 separate physical drives... all SATA. I was using Kingwin's mobile hdd rack so that the 2 data storage drives were hotswappable. After running into the problem I skipped the Kingwin setup and connected directly to the MB and still experienced the same problem.

I noticed the following errors in teh event log:

ID: 2 - Source: LDM -- INTERNAL Error - The disk group contains no valid configuration copies

ID 6 - Source: dmboot -- Failed to auto-import disk group Cory-c6bd30de4bDg0. All volumes in the disk group are not available.

ID 9 - Source: UISata -- The device, \Device\Scsi\UlSata1, did not respond within the timeout period.

I do not see the drives listed in windows explorer but I do see them listed in Device Mgr and Disk Management. Under DiskMgmt the drive is listed as Disk 1 Dynamic Offline and I tried to "Reactivate" it but it gives me an error: The operation did not complete. Check the System Event Log for more info.

I think that's what I've been able to put together so far. Here are my system specs:

MB: Asus P4C800-e
Processor: Pentium4 3.2Ghz
2 GB RAM
WinXP Pro v. 2002 SP3

The drives in question are: WD5000AACS

I did find this thread that looked pretty accurate, but I don't have the knowledge enough to be doing a lot of trial and error here.
