here's what I have,
1Ghz AMD Athlon
10GB HDD - primary master - FAT32
40GB HDD - primary slave - FAT32
Windows 2000 Pro
It just happened, probably by a virus of some sort... my slave drive suddenly disappeared, there's this unknown device that show's up on the device manager. I deleted the unknown device and the slave drive reappeared. It worked for a week or so, then it went kaput. the computer can detect the HDD but it won't show up on windows. I tried booting it using a win98 bootdisk, still won't show up. I used fdisk and it shows that my slave drive has 4 partitions, but in fact it only had 1, it shows 100% non-dos, 10% non-dos, 10% non-dos, 10% non-dos. You see, i don't think it's possible to have a hard drive that can be partitioned up to 130% of it's capacity...
I don't want to reformat yet, I have very important files in the slave drive. I'm still hoping i can find a solution to reverse all of these crap... anybody???
