How is the HD jumper set? It can be confusing if you change the make of HD.
okay here is the problem just installed a new hard drive went fine boots up great. now heres the problem what i get is when I open windows explorer or my computer folder i get the flashlite from hell takes 5 to 10 mins to find my drives. desktop comes up just fine and can go on the internet and run programs that are not hard drive intensive while i wait. and the computer runs fine after the hard drive is found. the question is is this hard drive failure to comunicate after boot or software problem.? the 80 gig i had on here ran fine.

there soultion is to either take the disk back to where i bought it and exchange it since they never heard of their drive doing this and all is installed right.
i'm not totaly convinced it is the hard drive yet and it is about 120 miles to where i purchased it from so looking for any ideas i may have overlooked!.
