    but it is.

    Just recently installed XP Pro on my machine. I Already had a hard drive with all my music on it so i didnt go for that NTFS file system bollox just left the file structure the same.

    It ran great for a while and everything was working when i downloaded a file from a website. Near the end of the download the whole thing froze and i restarted the machine. It went throught the usual your pc did not shut down correctly lark and when xp came back up it just has the second drive down as local disk when its label is secondary and when i try explore it it says its unformatted.

    I took the drive out and tried it on another machine with W98se and its fine. Anyone know whats going on.
