F:\ Is not accessible. Incorrect Fu

Specs: XP, 3500

Someone help... I have 2 hard drives setup in my system. One hard drive is SATA and is the one that has windows XP installed. The second hard drive is an IDE drive that is used only as storage. For some reason the second drive isn't letting me access it. It keeps giving me a message that says "F:\ Is not accessible. Incorrect Function"

Anyone know what that means? If I can't access the drive, how would I go about extracting the data out of it? Is there a way? TIA

One can only guess what drive f: is. You need to say EXACTLY what SATA and IDE drives and partitions you have.

If at first you don't succeed, you're about average.

Go to disk management in WinXP and post what type of disk F is and any other info listed there.

What service pack is installed on this computer and what size are each of your two harddrives?

Maybe this will give some ideas even though not related to a harddrive ---
