Try taking the cover of it and then Reseat the Drive Ribbon Plugs

Don't think that is the problem. The computer recognises it by the fact the light flashes on the front of the drive and a sound is emmited [a ding dong] as when working. Might be something to do with Acronis Partition Expert where I increased the size of a partition from another partition.

Well if you are not willing to try. What's the point of posting question

Woodchip....thank you for that. As I said I think, and am now sure, the computer is recognising it. All 4 drives [partitions] appear in disk management and did so in The Acronis programe before I uninstalled it. I have also re formatted a partition on it. What is not happening is it fails to appear in My Computer so, I am unable to access the partitions hence the origninal question.

All sorted now by doing a system restore
