Hi Uraiser.

Take a look in disk management and see if it shows there. I have had some do flaky things with drive lettering. Right click My Computer and select Manage. Look at the disk management section and see if it appears there.

Did he change anything?

Good luck,

Rigel

We figured it out, thanks for the help. An ATA was loose. He forgot to screw the drive back in after re assembling the PC. Thanks!
