I'm having a serious problem with one of my new hard drives. It is a 500GB Western Digital SATA II internal hard drive. I recently had to do a hard reset due to a 3D application freezing up (which was installed on this drive) and now Windows XP does not detect the drive at all. I fear it might be dead. I can see it registered in the BIOS but the drive does not appear in "My Computer" or in the "Device Manager" as it did before. I have been using this drive for the past few weeks without any issues so I would appreciate any input on this. I'm not too familiar with the SATA interface so I could be overlooking something I suppose. Feel free to help me out. Thanks in advance.
