    Hi,

    My computer suddenly doesn't show my D: hard drive. It has 1.3TB. It happened once before, and I rebooted and it showed up again. Now no matter how many times I shut down, wait and boot up, it doesn't show. I've been doing some research to fix it, so I tried using tesk disk to see if that will help.
    This is what it shows

    then I Continue and this is what I get.

    I don't know why this one has things in red..


    I really don't know what to do now. Do I just set the second one to Primary and then continue and write? Please if someone can give me some advice that'd be really great.

    Open the case [system OFF] reseat both the data and pw connectors ie pull them OFF then reinstall. Next if that does not fix the problem, try another data cable and or another sata port.

    Post back with results.

    I would try running the manufacturers diagnostics on the drive if the reseating of the connections don't change anything.
