Hello All,

I am a bit of a newbie, so pls bear with me. I will try to describe the issue the best I can, pls let me know what further details I can provide.

- I had a system built with an ASUS Motherboard (M2AVM), 1GB of Crucial RAM, AMD 64X2 Processor (Dual Core), and a WD 250GB Hard Drive
- I installed Windows Vista Ultimate and everything has been working fine.
- I tried to install a second hard drive (IDE) from my old computer (Seagate - purchased 4-5 years ago). The hard drive is filled to capacity (120GB).
- I plugged in the HD and set the jumpers so that it shows as "Primary-Slave" under the IDE section in BIOS. Thus, I figure it is installed and working properly. From the IDE cable, I plugged the "gray" piece into the hard drive rather than the "black" piece.
- I log into Vista, and I can see the drive under MyComputer, however, when I try to access it, it gives me the message "E:/ is not accessible. There is not enough space on the disk"
- Under properties, it shows nothing under File System (I believe it should be showing NTFS?) and it shows 0KB for both free space and used space (the entire colour of the pie is blue)

I would greatly appreciate any advice, my entire music library and photos are on this hardrive!!

Thanks in advance

p.s. This hard drive was working fine in my old system running Windows XP
