  1. I made a new installation of WinXP today and after downloading some updates and rebooting, I can not access some drives in my PC and I get this message.
    "The Disk in Drive D is not formatted, do you want to format it now? "

    I was scared at first cause i've a lot of important data on my pc so i rebooted again and run my windows installation CD again and when i finished I've found all my drives working again so i started running windows update and installing my software again and then after some updates I rebooted and the same problem happened again.

    anyone can help me plz?
