First off, I'm not sure if I should post this here, but, it's my best bet since I don't hang around too many forums. Sorry if I'm wrong. Well, as the title says, in the last couple of days, I've been getting this annoying message: "D :\ is not accessible. The device is not ready." This is the first time I encountered this error, and that is why I have issues understanding and fixing it. I have no idea where it came from, it only showed up yesterday morning out of nowhere. I thought I fixed it yesterday when I recreated the partition with the windows installation disk (which, btw, could read all the files within the partition, files that are now lost because I deleted and remade the partition), but, to my surprise it happened again today. My Local Disk D :\ is not accessible for whatever reason. And I can't seem to find anything on the internet about it. Using Windows 7 Ultimate x64, HDD is Western Digital WD5000AAKS 500GB, split into two logical partitions, 70GB in C:\ and the rest in D :\ Thanks in advance.
