The D and E drives are not partitions on the hard disk. They are external drives that came in the Dell Dimension 8400 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz 2.99 GHzx, 2.00 GB of RAM Physical Address Extension. System Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 3. I upgraded the RAM from 1 to 2 GB.
Did you go into bios and enable the drives?

Similar problem occurred when I disconnected the power on the slave ide drive without disconnecting the cable. Had cdrom jumper on cable select and would be be seen by computer in bios or windows. Once I disconnected the ide HD cable it worked.
