Cannot reconize the D drive.


I am trying to reformat my comp. my D drive wont recognize any cd . the start up floppy disk loads and says my drive is E and it cant read it. I dont have an e drive. the windows re-installation disk is in the D drive.

When I put a different disk in the drive it says put disk in drive. I think I deleted to much in trying to get rid of errors i was having and I have only one back up poin and restore says it cant be restored to that date.

I am not sure if you have two partition on your computer, but if you do have it, then your cd drive will become the E drive If your CD Drive is not working, you need to uninstall and reinstall the driver for the CD drive and reboot your computer and see if that works.

Good Luck!
