    Here's the story:
    I installed alcohol (long ago - trial version) which created a 'virtual' E dvd/cd drive.

    I install SP2 for XP today, and everything seems to be fine.
    I start to play starcraft, then in the middle of my first game, It shuts down, and windows says, cant read INSTALL.EXE

    I'm like wft, never happened before, tried running starcraft, didn't work, so went to my comp, and discovered that I HAD NO D: DRIVE!!!! Only the virtual E: drive.

    I thought, it might be alcohol, because it as well as starcraft were in the list of progs that SP2 affects.

    Anyway, I uninstalled it, and now I don't have the E: drive, but I dont have the D: drive still...

    I did restart.

    I cant access D: drive though my comp, explorer, anything really, not even command prompt.

    I tried scanning for new hardware - no luck.
    Tried manually installing it, but it wasn't in the list, and then I don't know jack about it, like the manufacturer, so I can't install it that way, and it isn't in the generics.

    Ummm, yer, some suggestions please.

    O by the way, I do have the backup option of uninstalling SP2, and system restore point before I installed it.

    I don't wish to resort to that, might not even fix it.
