i have 2 primary hard drives and 1 secondry drive, i have a drive caddy fitted so i can change from 1 primary to the other, when i have 1 primary drive fitted my secondry drive is not in "my computer" screen, but if i fit the other primary drive it is, i am running windows xp, anyone got any ideas.
the drive has been formatted, when i use one of my removable hard drives the drive shows up, but when i use the other removable drive is dos'nt,i have checked the settings in the bios settings,the drive must be formatted ok, as i can use it when i have one of my removable drives fitted.
on my system xp prof i have a primary hard drive and a secondry drive, but the secondry drive has dissapeared, it is shown in the device manager,and is working ok, but not in "my computer" so i can't access it, anyone got any ideas.
Jeff, can I suggest that you remove the secondary drive and boot up on the primary drive that it does not show up in 'My Computer'.
This sould say no secondary /slave drive found. Once booted up into windows shut down properly (a full shut down ,not a reboot). Now put the secondary drive back in and boot up, now check to see if it is shown in 'My Computer'.
