Running Windows XP. I have 2 hard drives in my computer - C as my main and "D" where I keep all my toys - itunes, ventrillo, WoW Game, all my music and photos. Turned the computer on when I got home tonight - clicked on the Wow Icon and - it gives me an error message - saying the file can't be found. I clicked on MY COMPUTER and the D drive is missing... what can I do to make it show up again? Thanks for any help.

I hope i am not stating the obvious but have you tried to restart the computer? I would recommend that you do a complete power down, then re start the computer.

Done - twice -but I'll do it again for good measure.
I have had to do this at work before - but I can't remember how I did it. One day the dvd drive "E" wouldn't show up under "my computer" - the IT guy had me tell the computer to recognize it and I think I like reassigned the letter to the drive.. and wala! But of course my IT guy isn't answering the phone or checking email right now!

Ok then. Click on start and then left click on my computer, move the mouse down to manage and click on it, a new window will open called computer management double click on storage then double click on disk management. There should be a list of drives there, is your missing drive listed?

Do you know how to get into the bios of your computer at start up? If you do check to see if the drive is listed there. If not i need to now the manufacturer of your computer and mother board.
