  impact 17:09 25 Nov 2007

My original harddrive was making a racket on startup until it got up to speed, and then it would be fine,it only happened the first time each morning,i decided to install a second drive, make that the master and the original the slave,old drive is,80gb new one is 160gb,i used acronis to clone drive after installing new one,it went very well,i entered setup and put new drive to boot first,when i went to my computer on the desktop,the old one isnt there only the new one showing as the c drive with correct storage,i can see my old drive in device manager and in acronis,i changed the jumpers on the drives as per maxtors instructions,checked all my cables but i cant seem to find it anywhere, i would be very grateful for any help with this,thanks.

Right click My computer - Manage - Storage - Disk management.

Can you see the drive there?

You may need to allocate a drive letter.
