Hard Drive keeps disapparing Tags: Graphics Cards Hard Drives Samsung Storage Last response: May 22, 2012 1:06 AM in Storage Share zyzz May 5, 2012 1:14:51 AM I have an 80GB Samsung Master connected to a 160GB Samsung Slave. They are IDE drives. The Slave is connected with a molex that is also connected to the video card. I have swapped the it to share the molex with DVD rom or the one with the video card. Regardless the Hard Drive sometimes just "disappears." If I replug it back in, restart, the HD appears. Then it will just disappear after another restart / shutdown.

I had to fiddle with some settings in Windows and properly create a partition and format the slave again. Wouldn't shown in XP like it does in Windows 7 if you just connect it.
