Where is my drive?
Posted on 2004-08-04
Western Digital Information: Model No.: WD1200JB-32EVA0
Booted up, Slave drive not present, supposed to be on Drive D.
Checked XP Event Viewer: System: Controller Error Reported
Replaced Ribbon Cable with a Brand new cable
Booted up, nothing, no Drive D
Set Drive to Master and booted from WD Data Lifeguard Tools, went to Diagnostics, Error 220 reported: drive locked
Booted up again:
Click on Device Manager: I'm staring at Disk Drive and the drive is sitting right there!
Right click, click on Properties: Device is working properly, why can't it be accessed?
(By the way 100 GB of data on the drive)
