I agree with the other solutions here. You cannot access the D drive because it is reserved for CDs and DVDs. There isn't any actual data storage there, it is just a disk reader.

Hi

Most PC manufactures reserve drive drive D: for system restore utilities and files. If drive C: is full, it is recommended to free up space by backuping/moving files/documents to an external drive or deleting unnecessary files which are clogging up the drive.

From you query your options are:
1. Format Drive D: and use it as second drive.
Right-click drive D and choose format. CAUTION - YOU WILL LOOSE ALL FILES ON DRIVE D:.

2. Used 3rd Party tools or Windows DiskPart to expand drive C: into the space on drive D:

By D drive, do you mean a CD/DVD sort of drive or do you mean an extra hard drive (like your C drive). If you cant access a CD/DVD drive you either havnt got a disk in or the drive is faulty. If it is a hard drive (if it is new, it is not formatted, if it is old, it is faulty)
If you can see both listed in windows explorer, if you click on D what message do you get?

Retriving Data from Storejet and uploading to new computor


If the hard drive in the IBM laptop is OK then remove the hard drive from this laptop. Connect this hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter then connect the USB adapter with the hard drive into the USB port on the Vaio laptop. The Vaio laptop should see it as an external storage device (if the hard drive is OK). You can then open the various folders and files then copy these to the Vaio laptop

It should be easy to connect your drive as a "slave" disk-drive into a second computer, to enable you to access all your data files, and burn them to a few CD/DVD disks. Is that what you want to do?

Put the disk-drive back into your computer, and take your genuine Microsoft CD-ROM disk into your CD-drive, and restart your computer. Tell your computer to "boot" from the CD-drive,
and then you can re-install Windows onto the disk-drive.

Maxtor 160G hard drive - access denied


The drive is dead. Here is a solution that is not guaranteed to work but worth a try. Place the drive into a Ziploc bag and then place that into 2nd Ziploc bag, place into the freezer for 48 hours allowing the drive to get good and cold, once the drive is cold before removing from the freezer get computer ready to back up the files needed on the drive. I have had this work but only for about 30 minutes at a time max so plan on 15 - 20 as your target. Also keep in mind I have never had this work more than once so target critical files first. If this does work please rate.....

External Hard Drive I/O Error


Somehow i tried to format and it was formatted. took pretty long time as 1 terabyte. i thought all is ok as the drive was accessible. Just to double check, i scanned the drive thorugh the seagate manager and it got stuck on 10% for few seconds and then said that the hard disk is faulty and should be immediately returned if under warranty. and to confirm it also gave me read errors http://www.dtidata.com/resourcecenter/2007/05/15/how-to-tell-hard-drive-physical-damage/

so i'm giving it to seagate service centre as it probably has physical faults, bad sectors. and someone told me that 1TB hard drives are not stable.

Removing batterry Cover


when the back cover is removed the hard drive is automatically stopped. that may be the reason why you are not able to access the hard drive.
This is normal, and is advised to always switch off the mobile before removing the back cover. It is not safe for the hard disk, it may crash and affect the life of HD
