I just did a fresh re-install of XP and for some reason I'm having trouble with my second hard drive. Its already formatted and contains 2 partitions which were working fine before the re-install. I have the jumpers set correctly. In the disk management section of the device manager, the disk shows up as health (active) and online. It has not been assigned a letter and XP won't let me assign one. Before I re-installed the OS, I reformatted my C drive but I didn't reformat the slave drive. Any ideas?

Thanks

HI, This happens quite often and I do not know the answer. On this computer it has happened twice, once when I bought it and all the shop could do was reformat the drive. The second time I did an install and the same thing happened and I also reformatted the drive.

Do a search as this question has come up umpteen times or if it does not matter reformat the drive and see if this helps. Sometimes PM is blamed. Peace Mal
