I have recently upgraded my OS from Windows ME to Windows XP due to some USB problems. Now USB problem has been solved but one of my hard drive is not working properly. I currently have 3 hard drives... C: D: and E: ...but E: dosent work right. When I click E: it asking me if I want to "format" it... of course I clicked no...but since I can not open this hard drive, I really need help fixing this hard drive(There are so many movies, mp3s, utilities...and so on.)...is there some kind of patch? It worked very fine before upgrading it to XP but I have no idea why it's doing that.

Is drive E a local hard drive or a partition? If it is a local hard drive than I would suspect that the volume is corrupted or at the very least unmountable. Your best bet would be to disconnect the drive from the system reboot the system, shut down reconnect the drive reboot and let XP redetect it. In the future when installing XP you might want to disconnect the second and third drives from the system before the install. Less problems that way.
