Are you running windows xp? If so, try this:

Click Start>Right-Click "My Computer">Click Manage.

On the left hand side click where is says "Disk Management". Here is tells you about your drives. Post a screenshot of this screen here so we can see what the problem is.

Which operating system?

EDIT: ^^ exactly what I was thinking, if there is free space delete the partition and recreate it.
