Hi ppl, I'm new on here so any help would be appreciated. OK, After several days of annoyance, I decided to reformat my PC... I've been running XP on a 120GB HDD - 2 partitions both NTFS and approx 60GB C: and D:. All my important stuff is kept on/transferred to an old 20GB drive (FAT32) from my first PC which I've never had problems with. Successful reformat of C: and D: only to find I can't access anything from my old drive, it doesn't appear on My Computer but is recognised on the BIOS, Device Manager and Disk Management, it has no label or drive letter assigned to it and right clicking on it in Disk Management only allows 'Delete Partition' and 'Help'. Windows Help or Troubleshooter are no help at all. There are no crosses or conflicts on the drive in Device Manager which says the drive is working properly. It seems the drive is still working and if I could assign a letter to the soddin thing it'd work (maybe). Sorry its a bit long winded, I thought I'd include all the info I have. Please help as I've got docs, music, and a lifetime of pictures that are irreplaceable! Cheers.
