My internal hardrive partitioned as c:\ D:\ will not allow me to access the D:\

If i try to access an error pops up "D:\ is not accessible The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error

Any ideas appreciated as to what I can do,

thanks

Yep, sorry,


Occasionally this Amari comp dual 1gz 1 gig of ram memory dumps.
(win2000 prof)

This time after the memory dump the D:\ has become un - accessable.

I can reboot the computer but only access C:\

I wondered if its possible to get data off the D:\ somehow

Just checking make etc of the hardrive now.....

The only info on the hardrive available to me via Device manager is serial number IC 35 L 060 AVER 07-0


The other thing is windows loads a default profile now as my profile is corrupt. Also keeps prompting me to reinstall mouse drivers.

is that enough info ? :cry:

Try accessing D:\ from safe mode or via DOS and the command line :

cd d:\

See if that works, if you can access D:\ delete it all or try formatting the partition.
