  1. Ok, here is a strange problem for you guys. I just reformatted my C drive and reinstalled windows. Everything went fine. No problems there. The problem I am having is that my other drive, drive D:, is not showing up in windows now. Before the reformat it detected fine. I used the ASTRA32 program and it finds my other hard drive. Ive tried going into the bios and doing an auto detect and all of that, but still nothing. What do I do, any suggestions?

    Welcome to TechSpot
    How are your HDs set up, C=Master and D=Slave or are you using cable-select?
    If the latter, change the jumpers on the back of the HD.
    Is the D-drive formatted?
