I have a IBM deskstar drive which I have been using as a slave drive
with Windows XP Home for several months with no problems. However about
a month ago the computer took a long time to detect the drive and once
it eventually did it kept trying to read it but this no luck. Thus
completely slowed the boot up process of a minute to about 5 minutes. I
have tried to gain access to the drive via windows explorer but when I
click on the drive it just constantly tries to read the drive with no
luck (I can hear the drive working). I think when I tried booting up in
safe mode it came up with a comment like can't access or can't find the
I have a couple of question which I hope someone out there may be able
to help me with:
1.Is there a way for me to repair this partition table?
2.If i can't repair how can i format the dive when windows will not let
me gain access to the drive.
I have tried the drive both as a master and slave but neither work
I would be gratful for any help.
