    Hello,


    I took out my secondary HDD to back up some files on my sisters pc in order to format and reinstall XP.

    On putting it back in my pc it will not import my 'foreign' disk (which has 2 partitions) and kicks of the error code and event log as shown in the attached pictures.

    The event log say's it cannot import disks with the same name? Since the disk will not import I cannot see it in 'My Computer'.

    Device manager says it installed and working properly.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Jon

    Is this a dynamic disk by chance?

    hello,

    yes the disk is dynamic simple.

    Thanks for the links Bob, but it's starting to get above my understanding.

    Is there a simple way to recover the data on the disk?

    Thanks, Jon
