    i recommend against multiple partitions. Stick to one big one.

    Open the D:\ drive in my computer and list what's on it.

    In XP, if you put in one disk, and it is reading it, and you take it out and put in another, sometimes it will not work whatsoever until you put the original disk back in that it is expecting, and let it read that. Shitty bug, but true. So put the first disk you had in there before it started happening back in.

    Just a guess, but that might be it.

    Seconded. There's no point in having multiple partitions on a single disk if it can be helped. I don't know if XP is smart about it, but I do know that older versions of Windows would treat the separate partitions like they could be accessed at the same time without interrupting each other, which is NOT the case. Slows things way down when you do that.
