  1. you just plug it in, however if the D drive disappears, is no longer recognized, it's not usually the drive.
    The problem is widely recognized as being caused by loading microsoft automatic update, and has occurred in thousands of computers, it's a bug in XP.
    Two ways to fix it, one is to remove filters. The other way is to do a repair install of windows XP, see THIS forum, fourth post from the top, for the directions.
    removing the filters, which works very often, but not 100% of the time:

    left click start in the lower left hand of the screen
    left click run
    type regedit
    left click OK
    Now the registry editor will come up
    double left click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    double left click on SYSTEM
    double left click on CurrentControlSet
    double left click on Control
    double left click on Class
    double left click on {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    look on the right side of the window for upper filters
    right click on upper filters
    left click delete
    windows will then ask you to confirm deletion
    click yes
    look on the right side of the window for lower filters
    if you do not see lower filters, you may be out of luck on this one.
    right click on lower filters
    left click on delete
    windows will then ask to confirm deletion
    click yes
    Close all the windows that are open
    restart the computer
