    how is the drive connected? IDE, SATA, SCSI?

    is this how you tryed to find the upper & lower filters?

    "Follow these directions for clearing the Upper/Lower Filters: (might want to print this out)

    1. Click on Start --> Run --> and type in 'regedit' followed by the enter key ( if Vista Start search or windows+R )
    2. Expand the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" key (looks like a folder) by double clicking it (or
    3. clicking the "+" next to it.)
    4. Expand the "SYSTEM" Key
    5. Expand the "CurrentControlSet" Key
    6. Expand the "Control" Key
    7. Expand the "Class" Key
    8. Please look for a key containing the following string of letter and numbers:
    {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    9. High light this key by left clicking once on it
    10. On the right hand side you are looking for "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" under the "Name" column, once you find these please delete them by right clicking on them and choosing "delete"
    11. Please exit the registry by clicking on the "X" in the top right hand corner of the screen

    Reboot your computer " <I didn't write this...

    if not try again using these.
