Hi all, I had a problem a few months ago with my new SATA drive (see here: https://www.techspot.com/vb/topic28952.html) I did get it up and running, but I've had a problem with it today. I decided to reinstall windows xp, and refomrtted the main HD (also SATA). I got windows working again, but once more the SATA drive was no recoginised, as was the case the first time around (see earlier post). I followed the basic instructions I was given last time around, but now this extra drive - which is now chock full of important files - comes up as being empty and unformatted. I DID NOT reformat it during any of the processes today. Can anybody tell what is wrong, what I've done wrong, and any way to fix it so that I have access to the files on the disk??? Thanks!!!
