Hi Aschanderl,
I'm assumming the drive you are referring to was a partitioned hard disk drive where you saved files and installed programs.  If this is where your Operating System was installed to then by deleting the drive you have in effect damaged your OS.  Since many applications and program files are directly tied into the registry of your OS, in effect this means those files are damaged as well.
If you require files on the hard drive partition you deleted, I would recommend taking it to a data recovery service at your local computer store.
If not, you should take your operating system CD, load it into your CD drive, and when you boot your computer up at one of the bios screen choose to reinstall Windows.  At this point you can format your old partition F when it prompts you to do so if you don't care about the remnants of any files that may not have been deleted.
Hope this helps somewhat.
Here is a useful link as well:

Unable to format, partition,ins. os and boot my toshiba TE2100..

The CMOS needs to be set to first read the CD or DVD drive before it reads the Hard drive. Once your XP disk is in the drive it will boot from the CD drive and setup the computer, The CMOS is acessed by turning on the computer and immediatly pressing either the deleat key or the F! or F2 key try each one till you get to CMOS then look for boot section. Set CD drive to first your HD drive to second.

Cant deleat songs

Re format the player. It thinks that you deleted parts of the other songs. They do this from time to time. Go under Pearl options, and select format. It will delete all current songs, but when you load the new ones, they will play better.
