Drive D: unresponsive

I have an HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop with an ATA device drive D:. My problem is this device shows working normally thru hardware check but 100% full in used space. I have photos loaded onto this drive but nowhere near full. When performing check disk, it asks to be formated first. How do I get this drive back from nowhere land? It shows up when viewing Computer, but with no free space or total size. I reseated the drive and this did not resolve the problem.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Little long process.. try to understand and do it..

First, Boot your system with WinXp-Sp2 Installation disk.. then select repair option when it asks.. you will get Windows console..it will prompt for administrator password.. enter it.. then you will come to c:\windows

type command chkdsk /r

after chkdsk completes 100%, type this:
fixmbr
now try accessing d:\

good luck

You first remove that device from device manager.

You may check the BIOS menu for that device for any clarification.
After restart since u have removed it the OS will detect the device and install it automatically.

Here are some things that you can try to resolve this problem.

Update the driver

In the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard. Follow the instructions to update the driver.

You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in, or may still have the driver files installed from the last time that you set up the device. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor’s Web site.

Pioneer DVDRW DR-KW08HB ATA Device driver issues


To me that sounds like something got corrupted with Windows, if you have a restore CD, or know how to reinstall your OS I would recommend that, AFTER you back up your files though as you will lose anything you had saved on there. But that could fix it, or it could be the drive is bad also.

HP Pavillion dv9000 cd/dvd driver has problems


I would recomend replacing the cd drive, a driver update would not resolve this issue. It sounds like hardware to me. I would search on ebay and get a used or like new one and replace it yourself if you know how to replace it. The HP website will show you how to do it yourself.

Please post update
