ERROR: The wrong diskette is in the drive Insert volume serial number into drive
Posted on 2005-04-19
Thank you in advance for you help and here's what's going on--
I upgraded up BIOS on my Gigabyte GA-8KNXP i875P P4 running XP Pro SP1 with a SATA boot drive and two Maxtor drives (non-raid) for data. One of the Maxtor drives is bootable as XP Pro.
After restarting my computer and making the changes to CMOS to have all the drives be found properly, and then having to make some jumper changes to Maxtor drives acording I went ahead and booted onto the SATA drive. As it started, XP found that it needed to run SCANDISK on both the Maxtor drives interestingly.
After SCANDISK ran it's full course saying it needed to delete some bad info on both drives (it looked like the same types of things were being "fixed" on both drives), it went ahead and finished loading.
Now when I try to access the Maxtor drives I get the above error, "F:\ is not accessible. the wrong diskette..." Disk management shows the drive letters correctly however they are not formatted as NTFS now - they are showing as File System: RAW and I cannot access the drive.
How can I get access to my drives back?
PS. Everything is working normally on the SATA drive...
