Default Cannot access drives???

I have a computer in which all of the drives used to work fine, now when I try to access the floppy drive it says “drive inaccessible. Incorrect function “

If I try and access my flash drive it gives me the same message

I cannot access the CD Rom, the CD spins up and if you right click on it and look at information it knows there is a disk in there and even what is on the disk, but if you look at it in explorer it shows as though there is nothing in there.

I have installed a second hard drive, but in computer management I cannot format the drive it says “format failed / cannot be completed” (something like that)

I know the drives all work and I have done a full virus scan so I know the system is clean

If I boot with a boot disk the floppy works fine and I can read the contents of floppy disks

By the way, the C drive works fine and my second hard drive lets me create a folder on it, but if I want to put the swap file on it, it will not let me.

My system is Windows XP SP2

Any ideas would be gratefully appreciated
