Re: Hard drive disapear in winxp - help
If it has no partitions, it shouldn't show up at all, except in Disk Management as "unallocated". You should format it within Disk Mangement, and you should see it all the time after that. If not, you may have an IDE/SATA controller going bad, or the hard drive is going bad, or the connection is not good (power and IDE/SATA).
