I've just installed a new hard drive in addition to my exisiting one. The original drive is just C:, and the new drive is partitioned into 3 which are D:, E:, and F:.
The zip drive is now G:, and the cd-rom is R:.
All the drives are functioning fine, I partitioned and formatted the new one using FDISK and it is all FAT32.
The problem is that in Windows 98 I can initially only see C:,D: and E: in Windows Explorer, but if I type any of the missing drive letters into the command line or the explorer bar, that drive appears in the tree and everythings fine!
So, I can see all of my drives once I have entered the missing drive letters into the explorer bar one at a time, and they all work fine.
But then when I close Explorer and reopen it they are gone again, leaving just C:, D: and E:.
It occurs to me that this is either one of two things:
1) Something to do with Active Desktop or whatever remembering the drives I had before and only displaying those three drive letters until I specifically ask it to show me the others.
2) A bug in the first release of Win98 (which is what I am using).
Can anyone help?
