    Hey fellas!

    After reformatting my friend's system I ran into trouble getting the secondary HD to work with XP.

    The system has 2 SATA drives. on drive C: is a fresh installation of XP.

    Before formatting he had a WD500 drive connected, which was used for backup & storage.

    Before format I physically disconnected the WD500 drive.

    When I hooked up the other drive Windows recognized it, but now it won't show it on "my computer" and there is no access to it.

    Device Manager states that it is working properly, however in Manage > "Storage" tab it won't show at all.

    The WD500 is filled with backup files.

    How do I resolve this? :(
