I have both my hard drives on the primary IDE channel, one 100 gb (the C: drive), and the 2nd the 40 gb (not listed in the “My computer” screen) is not listed. The “My Computer” screen identifies the DVD drives as D: and E:, although they are on the Secondary IDE channel. HOWEVER, under “System Information” and under the “Device Manager,” both hard drives are listed under the Primary IDE channel and both are identified as on the UDMA 5 setting. They are also detected on the initial boot-up screen at start up.
How can I get my system to detect the 2nd HDD and change the drive letter to D: (as it should have been when I reinstalled XP), and get it to change the DVD drives to E: and F: as they were before? Let me know! I think I may have read of this solution before, but I could not find it.
