845G is your chipset...that doesn't tell us much about the motherboard.

System manufacturer and model data...would be useful.

You might also take a look in Disk Management and take a screen shot there (using the Print Screen key) and maybe post that or post all the data reflected there for your drives/partitions.

If I had to guess, I'd say that you don't have your jumpers set properly...but it's too early to guess.

OK...this is what I would do :thumbsup:. This is just grasping at straws.

First...take a look at the drive connections and make sure that the jumper settings are correct.

http://www.ehow.com/how_6031_change-master...esignation.html

After ensuring that each drive has the correct settings, I would go into Disk Management and make the following changes.

Change letter assigned, D: to X:.

Change letter assigned, I: to Y:

Change name of Admin (F) to Admin 2, leave letter assigned alone.

Change letter assigned to 1st CD-ROM from G: to D:.

Leave H: drive alone.

IMO, your partition lettering/naming is a bit scrambled. I'd like to say that it makes no difference, but I do know that some problems can occur when D: is anything other than an optical drive...and two different partitions should never have the same name.

Make the changes in the order that I listed them.

Once that is done, reboot your system.

I hate to sound like a broken record...

Did you check the jumper settings on each drive...when you connected the two at the same time?

Is one drive set as Master, with one set as Slave?

Are the two drives connected on the same cable? Are they on separate cables, with nothing else on those cables?

When both are connected...are the drives properly reflected in the BIOS/Setup?
