    Hey, well, I just formatted my system.

    I have 2 drives. A 200GB that's partitioned into a 50GB C: and a 150GB E:

    C: is OS and Program Files, E: is business software.

    The partition is still there and XP is installed as well as motherboard (Asus K8NE Deulux) drivers and video/sound card drivers.

    But:

    My second drive, a 160GB just for media (music, movies ,TV series) that I believe is connected by S-ATA isn't showing up in Explorer...Under System/Hardware Manager it says that a Raid Controller driver hasn't been installed. Could this be the reason why it's not being detected?

    About 62GB of music is on there and I never formatted it before I re-installed XP. I just nuked the C: and E: drives.

    Missing drivers. Use the CD provided with the mobo.

    You need the drivers for the SiI3112 chip.

    There are 2 versions, RAID and NON-RAID.
    Since you aren't running raid you should install the NON-RAID version:

    unless you are running X64 in which case you want:

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
