Hello. I recently set up a second Harddrive on my PC. Pentium 4 running XP Pro Media Player. When I set it up the second Harddrive open and I was saving files to it for about a week without any problems. Today I attempted to save a file to the second Harddrive and I received a message "do you want to reformat G Drive?" Can someone tell me what has happened to my PC that it will not open my second Harddrive? Thank you.

Go to Start...Run...and type in "diskmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Let us know what it says there about your hard drive (you can post a screen shot if you'd like).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
