    Hey everyone,

    This post is in regards to a SATA drive I have. Its worked fine, I have 2 other similar SATA Hard drives, no problems with my ASUS K8VE Deluxe Mobo. Anyways, I was trying to burn a video file to a DVD-R using the DivxToDVD program and a few minutes of it the blue screen of death came up and I don't even remember what it said but it was the typical exception error yada yada. So I rebooted, and the drive the video file was being burned from, Drive "G" wasn't detected, the shortcut on my desktop showed a question mark over the icon. I clicked it and now it says: "The drive or network connection that the shortcut 'Drive (G).Ink' refers to is unavailable. Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available, and then try again." I rebooted twice since then, and its the same issue. I even tried downloading the program "Recover my files" but it detects everything except Drive G. I don't know if there's a way to get back into it either in safe mode or just using a program or something, I'm desperate here because I had a bunch of files held on the drive. Thanks for your time.
    -Tim

    try opening up the case, see if a cable has fallen out. does it make any noise? i can tell which of my hard drives are on.
    the old 18GB one is noisy, new 80GB is dead quiet

    Disconnect the drive that isn't recognized, then reboot. Shutdown, reconnect the problem drive. Be sure to check ALL connections to it.

    You could try the Program makers user forum to see if this is a problem with this program.

    I tried that, and its still saying that same message. I guess I can try putting the SATA cable into the other slot on the mobo, and if that doesn't work I'll try that program makers thing the other guy linked me to. I'll let ya know what happens
