I have a dual boot of xp and win7 on two separate partitions. Both systems work well however, xp cannot read drive D: at all. I tried to format it with XP as NTFS but everytime XP restarts it reads drive D: as RAW again. Win7 reads it with all data with no issues. What seems to be the problem and how do I solve it?
I had the exact same problem. You need to remove from the D drive everything you want to keep, as reformatting to NTFS will wipe the drive clean. Take this opportunity to also optomize / rearrange your drive contents if you wish.
Guys! thanks so much for the help. The drive was formatted with XP itself as NTFS. After every time I format the D: and restart, D drive becomes RAW again. I had to rename it to H: to solve the problem. But XP just doesnt like "D" for some reason!!!
