Well I figured it was time to defreg the three of my drives today, my primary is a SATA 40GB, Sata 320GB, master DVD Burner/IDE, and slave 160GB IDE HDD, both SATA's were done defreging before I fell a sleep except for the IDE 160GB which still had 60% left.
Now the problem is the power went out while the last and only IDE drive was defragin, when I woke up and booted up my primary 40GB wit XP on it booted fine and did the 320GB, the IDE 160GB though was not recognized at all in XP or in BIOS same for the IDE DVD burner I have never experienced this before what can it be? Did something get corrupted erased when the power went out?
I have tried resetting the BIOS new BIOS battery, and Wester Digital floppy diagnostic tool and it still wont recognize my dvd drive nor my 160GB IDE HDD.
If anyone can be a of help please let me know I dont wanna lose all my media just because of a couple setting/downloads I need to change.
