Go into disk management, see if its their. If it is, allocate/initialize.
If the drive is clean, you must format the drive, then allocate/initialize.

Sounds like another partition on the drive, but 0 bytes sounds strange.
Has the drive always been there? When you go to my computer does
it show the Q: drive? Are you sure you have another physical drive
inside the case?

Is it possible it was a mapped network drive that is no longer available? If you right click the Q drive and select properties - what does it show as properties for the drive? Is it shown in Device management under hard drives?

a cd/dvd drive? Guess its possible that it could emulate a hdd...:4-dontkno
