Thousands of BSODs and the mystery of the disappearing hard drive

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
It started a few days ago. BSOD while listening to music, surfing the net. My overclock was dead stable, so I wondered what it was. Narrowed it down to whenever I played media from drive D: - my Hitachi (System files/games/applications are on C: - the Seagate). Now I have it down to whenever D: is under load, it causes the dreaded BSOD, and whenever I reboot, Windows checks D: for consistency and finds errors. I know its not a wider system problem because anything thats run on the Seagate (C: ) is flawless.

Now I've come out of another BSOD whilst trying to frantically move files from D: to C: to find that the only hard drive Windows recognises is C:. D: has disappeared, it shows in computer management as "Disk 1", with a big no-entry sign on it.

So, anyway I can get back into D: and rescue the remaining files. They are pictures from our digital camera, and my mums going to kill me if I lose them

I had the same thing happen to my computer. My two seagates's in RAID0 are working flawlessly, but my Western Digital storage drive crapped out and I lost 25 gigs of music.
