hrm. i love it when i wake up and my computer magically suddenly does not detect my... oh... HUNNERD AND TWENTY GIG HARD DRIVE. any suggestions as to why it would have magically disappeared like a whore in the night?

this is not good.

i would be updating from semagic, but it's on my d: drive.
i would entertain myself with music, but it's all on my d: drive (all 20+ gigs of it)
i would show you fantastic pictures, but they're all on my d: drive.

remind me why i do not ever back that shiat up again?!?

*tries not to dwell/panic*

p.s., and stu? i went back and am reinstalling all the stuff you said to clean up my computer, too, virises and all that ilk, so we shall see if that helps at all...

You might also want to see if the drive is has the power and cable connections firmly attached. I just built my wife's new computer (for her birthday) last night and the DVDRW was giving me hell for the same reason.

if i were a smart little monkey, i would back up eerything that i have on my 120g hard drive that has importance, that i could not get again, i.e. the pictures i've taken over the last two years.

but i'm obviously not a smart little monkey.

Good luck on getting your stuff working again. I lost
a hard drive a few years ago. In a nasty bit or irony
I had bought a CD burner to back up all my stuff and
installing the software for it crashed my hard drive.
I was needless to say less then amused.

I agree with the cable comiming about before you crack open the case and much around (I try not to have end users do this)

Try going to disk management and seeing what it says, goto my computer (the icon) and right click it and got to manage, then head to "Disk management"

See if your drive is listed, if it has any listed errors etc etc.

Also you can try installing a program to read whats called S.M.A.R.T. Data but lets see what happens when you go to disk management.

Also when you have problems like this look in my info and grab my email, I'm probably just around and not looking at LJ.

my 120G drive used to dissapear like that on and off.
We unplugged it, plugged it back in, all the same. It did it very precisly every Saturday afternoon.
One day, because he was kinda pissed at Luca, cK took another look and realized he had set two drives to Slave instead one to Master.
It was funny how my computer still worked and how the drive decided to die on me only once a week with all those false setting.

i've learned that in instances like this, that most likely all i have to do is reseat it, thank doodness. it used to happen more frequently when i had the open case out where the cat could get to it.

Fuzzy butt did it too when she first came along, now she hardly comes into my room (darn cat) but you should have to reseat it too much... Ust be some kind of alignment problem but hey if it works for you :)
