SATA and IDE Drive
I recently installed an SATA drive on my system, replacing an IDE drive that I used for Windows. I set up windows on the SATA drive and it works great...however, I also had a 2nd IDE drive that I used for storage...unfortunatly now that drive is not working. It is listed in my device manager, however, I can not access it through My Computer or through Windows Explorer...any thoughts on this one? Thanks guys.

You may need to go to disk management and mount the drive. Right click my computer, go to manage and then disk management. It should list the drive and it's current state.
