    Default Disapearing Hard drive

    Have a comp I put together a year or so ago with parts I got from Fries and left over computers of my past. Forget the motherboard (don't want to look) but it runs a AMD 64 processer 2.21 GHz 1 gig ram, All in wonder 9700 and Audigy2 sound card. Decided to put all of my music on one large hard drive (H) the problem is it comes and goes. I fire the beast up and there it is, go back a couple hours and the drive is gone. Nowhere to be found, reboot and there it is???? Any ideas?

    Check connections on IDE and power plugs. Try a different IDE cable. Run a disk diagnostic program from the hard drive manufacturer. Back up your music files and anything else you like that is on that disk ...just in case.

    Yeah it might be time to go in and move things around. I have 4 different hard drives from western to seagate to something else. Is there a program out there that checks for optimium hardware settings and configs? I have a feeling if someone who really knows computers ever looked at what I put together would scratch their heads and be amazed that it works at all.

    Had the same problem except it was with a CD-ROM drive. Basically just replaced the IDE cable and put all HDDs on one cable and CD Drives on the other. Seemed to fix it.
