    first of all, right click the drive d:
    did it appear "Auto Play"?
    if it's, go to Tools->Folder Option->Under view Tabs->Uncheck Hide Protected Operation system file,and Hide extension for known file.
    after that, use explore open the drive d.
    Delete Auto_Run.ini file
    then rename ur drive d.

    How do you know it is corrupted?

    You said you can open it if you 'explore'. That doesn't sounded corrupted to me...

    Just like mentioned in the post above, it sounds like you have an autorun.inf file in D:\ that needs to be deleted.

    Dinushan I don't understand your question specifically.

    This thread was about a member who could not open a drive (via double click) due to an "autorun.inf" file on the root of the drive
    The fix was removing that hidden file.

    You are asking about how to repair a partition
    But before answering you there are a number of issues:

    1. Is there any data on the drive
    2. Is this the only Partition
    3. What are the error messages
    4. Are you trying to install Windows (version?)

    Please do not reply with any answers to these questions
    It is best for you to create your own thread, about "Partition Repair" here:
