i'm here, now

yeah i had the same prob

you should check the win2k compatability list

if yours is listed as incompatable, you will have to go with windows XP or 98

i went to xp and have had no problems :)

have a look in control panel>administrative tools>computer management>storage>disk management
see if the drive is there at all, and if it is make sure a drive letter is assigned to it

got home from a lan one day and for some reason had no 2nd hdd, i had a look there and the drive letter had gone:snip:
just one possibility... :)
