When I try to run the Mege Partition wizard, I get a pop up saying that "There are no partitions on this drive that can be merged." Am I doing something wrong here. Thanks again!
Partition Magic is able to merge partitions - have you tried this? I'd do it one operation at a time (rather than combining them) because of past problems that I've had with it using combined operations.

Probably because it's an unallocated partition. First partition the unallocated space, then format it, then merge it. It's been a while since I've done this - but I believe that the steps are:
1) unallocated space
2) allocate the space so that it can be formatted
3) format the space (same file system as the other partition)
4) merge the partitions

Yes you are correct, I have a 120GB HD. But I am wondering if there is anyway to get rid of the D: drive and add the freespace on that back to my C: drive. The D: drive currently has nothing on it, so I wanted that space back on my C: drive if possible. If not then, I could just use up the drive for something else. Thanks again for the help!
Thanks for the screenshot - it makes it much clearer!
In the box labelled C: you've got a 112,xxx mB partition that's about ½ used (52,xxx mB used, 60,xxx mB free)
In the little yellow box to the right of the C: box, you've got a 251 mB type 88 partition (I think it's a Linux partition), then to the right of that you've got a D: partition on an extended partition that's 1,5xx mB in size.
Adding these numbers says to me that you've got a 100 to 120 gB hard drive - is that correct? If so, then there's no unallocated space that I can see.
