I am using windows 98 SE on a WD 30 gig hard drive. I also have a Western Digital 120 gig as a second hard drive. Here's the problem; Windows now sees my second HD as a CD drive. When I go to device manager, it shows both HDs. Norton system information shows both HDs, but windows explorer sees a CD drive. I went to western digital and used their on line check and they recognized both drives and gave me the correct model numbers and serial numbers. I ran Western Digitals Diagnostics on both drives and it said there were no errors. I used windows start up disk to look at hard drives but it doesn't show up there either.
This has been running on my system for a year without any problems.
I did notice an incident about the same time. My clock was 23 min. slow. I reset the time and it has been correct ever since, however that was the first time it was ever more than a couple of seconds wrong. HELP!!!! Now i'm starting to panic.

There is not a letter assigned to the 120 gig hard drive in properties on device manager. Is there a way to manually assign a letter?
