I have a friend running Windows ME, he has a primary and a secondary hard drive installed but the system only recognizes the primary. The bios acknowledges the secondary, the dip switches are set correctly, the device manager idicates it is there, but Windows ME will not assign it a drive letter and will not allow the user to assign a drive letter .... any help other than re-format and re-partition the hard drive would be appreciated

Thanks
Shaun :eek:

In BIOS, is the drive set up for auto-detection. Check and see if it is. Also here are a couple articles you can read over. They don't apply directly to this problem, but they contain information on drive letter assignments.
