Recently I've been having trouble accessing my 200 GB Western Digital drive (WD2500JB). When I try to access it, I recieve the following error message:

D:\ is not accessible.
The parameter is incorrect.

I have used the Western Digital diagnostic test but it tells me that my drive is fine. Can anyone help me solve this problem? Thanks :)

Make sure windows itself is picking up the drive, even check the drivers under your system. One easy check is to replace the cable, to make sure that it is ok.

Did you just install the drive?
Nope, I've had this drive for about a year or so.

I've tried reconnecting the cables but it doesn't work. Device manager also shows the HDD and reports it as "working properly" :confused:

If the FSB is overclocked on the system set it back to standard.

Make sure you have SMART enabled in bios so the HD failure detection is working.

Run a complete virus scan on your system (C and D drives) with an up to date anti-virus.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
