  1. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium OS.
    I originally had a Windows Vista pc that had the cpu burn out on it.
    I had the geeksquad slave the hard drive over from my old vista pc into my new windows 7 pc. It has been working without any problem at all. Then last night after installing .net framework RC (4 beta 2) I restarted my pc and the drive was not located in the My computer folder. The drive was an E: the E: drive is labeled a CD drive. So i enabled the S.M.A.R.T setting in the windows setup and now the E: cd drive has been removed, but it is still not recognized through my disc managment. What should I be doing in order to get my slave drive to appear again? I've tried a system restor eand everything and the chkdsk /f returned no errors, except last night it said something about something being fixed..I dont know what it did

    My DxDiag.txt is attached

    Did you try removing the HDD from the case and starting the PC without it and then putting it back? Is the HDD sata or IDE?
