I am running XP SP3. I have a IDE Western Digital 20 gb protege hard drive that used to work in this PC as a slave HD until recently. I upgraded to SP3, and took it to the shop for repair, and nothing. Master HD works fine.
Slave HD shows up in both BIOS and in Device Manager, but not in Disk Management or in My Computer.
I have tried using the jumpers in both slave and cable select settings. The same results occurs in both.
I have deleted the drive from Device Manager, and upon restart the Windows finds it and "installs" it. However, it then returns to the same issue where it is seen in Device Manager and BIOS, but no where else.
I have checked BIOS and Device Manager settings, appear to be equivalent between Master and Slave HD except slave listed as secondary. Drives and IDE controls appear working fine in Device Manager.
Any and all help appreciated. Thank you.
