PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: XP
Problem Application Name & Version: WD1200 drive
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:


I am dividing my dual Zeon 2.4 ghz into two systems in order to run a dedicated program on one computer and all other programs on another.  I've removed the master hard drive with all programs leaving the 100 gig slave intact and replaced the original 120 WD1200 master with an identical WD1200 master hard drive with the same OS but only the one dedicated program.  Now, the new system doesn't recognize the original 100 gig slave drive that contains all of my work files.  In computer management and device manager, the drive is seen as being there as well as in the bios, however not in disk defrag or file manager making it impossible to access.  I can't reformat this drive as it contains all of my work data and I would've assumed that as long as the master was configured the same and the jumpers are all correct, the slave should be accessible.

Hi,

If the drives are set as AUTO in the BIOS, do you know if both motherboards detect the same drive parameters (cyl, head, sectors) for the drive you moved over?

The motherboard is the same as before.  Only the master drive (the sytems drive) was swapped.  The slave drive never moved out of the computer and that's the one that is no longer recognized.

Hi,

Is the master drive indeed set to master or WD's default setting (jumper set sideways)?
