I have a system drive (D) and another 180gb drive (G). I recently formated
and reintalled windows. Now, i can only see my system drive (D) in My
Computer but i can't see or access the other drive (G). I also can't see the
drive (G) in Disk Management. I downloaded the latest updates but it didn't
change anything. Please help ASAP.

Thanks a lot.

Can it have anything to do with the fact it said it was a 'dynamic disk' in
Disk Management in my old windows install?.

Have you tried the option to import a foreign disk?

Nss: Where is your system drive C:? You would normally expect the system
drive C: would exist and that your CD/DVD drive is the D: drive.
