I am having a wierd problem.
I am using XP Home and I have reciently (3 months) installed a WD 80 gig hd as a slave drive.
I used it a bunch for video editing until I decided to try my hand at learning Linux.
I cleared out the slave drive by doing a quick format in XP.
Now when I reboot the drive isn't listed in the file explorer.
I can go to administrative tools and see it with the disk maintenance option though.
I tried to do an install of new hardware but there isnt anything there to install.
There is a strange thing in that I downloaded a program for partitioning. It was just a demo but it showed me that there is 7 gigs of unallocated space and the rest is in an allocated space.
I am not sure what that means but it seems my primary Maxtor 80 gig drive is all allocated.
Anyway what would be a good next step to get my XP to see my slave drive again?
