Problem: 2 Letters for 1 Drive

I recently installed a 3rd 60GB hard drive in my system on a PCI controller card (Primary Master - only device on cable). My other 2 drives are the Primary Master and Primary Slave on the motherboard controller. Now, in My Computer I see 4 60 GB hard drives (I only have 3). I noticed that letters H: and J: are the same drive. When I copy a file to one it does not show up in the other. Of course, I do not want two letters for one drive. Does anyone have any idea how to remedy this problem? Thanks!

USE partition magic 8  to see the problem.
Or you can try to control panel-->administrative Tools--> Computer management ---> Disk management

What OS you use?

Use Disk Management as haoss said, remove the disk's and rescan them in.

Are there any other settings for your PCI controller card that might effect it?

I cloned one of the disks using ghost and the problem has solved itself! Thanks for the help anyway.
