Hi,

I'm using Windows 7 and I have four hard drives (C, E, F and G) and I've been having a lot of trouble with them lately. A couple of weeks ago my computer wouldn't start up. I ran through Startup Repair a few times but it didn't help. I tried disconnecting my secondary hard drives and reconnecting them one at a time after restarts and everything worked fine for a while.

Today I left my computer burning a DVD and when I came back to it it had gone to the login screen and when I logged in, only my C and G drives were available. I tried switching off and adding one hard drive at a time after a restart as I had before. This worked with my E and F drives which now work fine, but I am unable to access my G drive.

Please can someone suggest what I can do to get access to my G drive again and stop these problems from occuring again in the future?

Thanks,
Joe

The computer just crashed again and wouldn't restart. It works fine when I only have my C drive plugged in, but has problems if I have any other hard drive attached.
