Computer Crash ER: incorrect paramater/can't access drive
Posted on 2006-07-23
I'm running windows XP home on a custom made professional music computer. I have a 80 GB l c: drive as well as a two 120 GB Maxtor SATA 8mb Raid Configured 0. Last night I added a sample player piece of software that has been tested with my Cubase SX3 sequencer and verified to work. To make a long story short....my computer crashed and started to run very very very slowly.
I restored to previous date but it sttill ran very slow. I used Registry Mechanic and it took about three hours to go through its paces. It normally takes about 5 minutes. It found over 100 registry errors and now things appeared to run normally. HOWEVER when I went to check on my music files on the D: drive (raid )) I got an error message saying the drive can't be accessed D: incorrect parameter. I checked in the control panel/system and after a long wait I was able to access the device manager. It saw the D: drive and there were no error messages.
What can be done quickly about this as I'm in the middle of a PBS special film project that I'm composing music to.
