Hello,
I am having a problem accessing a SATA second hard drive,On the first HD I have windows XP and everything is booting up no problem but when I look in My Computer the 2nd hard drive does not show up, it showes up in Device Manager and in Computer Managment but it showes it at 100% free which is it is not and it doesn't show the partitions which there are three.please please HELP
I had this set up working before but had to reinstall windows XP I had Norton Roll Back installed could this have caused any problems??
