Suprised

My master drive is a 200gb maxtor, slave is a 30gb IBM. Everything was fine until I had to reinstall XP. After reinstalling XP I can no longer access the slave drive. It is recognized everywhere (bios, disk manager, device manager, at boot up etc) except My Computer, Explorer, or anywhere else I could actually access files. From device manager it looked like it hadn't been assigned a drive letter (CD Drive was D instead of E as before the reinstall of XP), so I reassigned the CD drive to E, shut down, unplugged all cables to the slave drive, rebooted, shut down again, still the same. The only options I have for the slave in disk manager are delete partition and properties. Both are listed as NTFS and Basic, slave (disk 1) is "healthy and active" and master (disk 0) is "healthy and system". Under properties, both say MBR for partition style. This really sucks because I moved all my files to the slave before reinstalling XP. This is the second time I've had to do this, the first time, everything was fine. All I did was reinstall XP Home, no other changes were made. Someone please help me!
