I’ve had lots of problems with my PC lately, turned out to be a duff motherboard, one stick of duff RAM and soundcard drivers causing a windows protection fault (my very first one!)
As a result of a long process involving much cursing, scratching of head, fruitless online searches, I eneded up reinstallinh the whole thing with the absolute minimum components, adding one at a time, until everything was running properly, well almost.
So now to my Q,
I have 2 hard drives(one is SCSI), both partitioned, one CD-RW and a plain old vanilla CD ROM.
However, windows cannot see every drive when they are all connected, I suspect its because of a default setting within windows and something to do with the Lastdrive letter allocation.
I remember a good while ago that all one had to do was go into one of the Windows system files, and change the last drive allocation from H: to a letter further along, say K: and this allows Windows to see all drive up to that letter.
I also remember that this did work last time.
I’ve done the obvious things like check on ‘Device Manager’ and tried the ‘Add new hardware’ wizard to no avail, and yes all the drives are visible in the bootup process and all are correctly set to the required Master, Slave settings.
So now is your cance to shine and beat everyone else to the glory
