I have two hard drives and two cdrom drives and my system is,
os xp
512 ram
amd processor 2.6
I recently had to reinstall xp and now when I go to "my computer" I can only see one hard drive which is the main drive "C" where is the other.
the two hard drives were originally C & D and
CD ROMS E & F now I am left with hard drive C &
CD ROMS D & E with of course floppy drive A,
I know the missing hard drive which was D is still on the system The question is how can I get it back to "my computer" to use.
Can someone help me please?
