Ok, here is a strange problem for you guys. I just reformatted my C drive and reinstalled windows. Everything went fine. No problems there. The problem I am having is that my other drive, drive D:, is not showing up in windows now. Before the reformat it detected fine. I used the ASTRA32 program and it finds my other hard drive. Ive tried going into the bios and doing an auto detect and all of that, but still nothing. What do I do, any suggestions?

Go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management and see what it says there about the secondary hard drive.

I did that, the second hard drive doesnt show up. See, they both were working fine before the reformat of the one drive. The fact that that ASTRA program can detect the other drive has me baffled. they both are western digital 80 gig drives, so ya, I dunno. What is really bad is I have all my saved stuff on that other drive, so I really need to get access to it. Any other ideas?
