Angry Can't access data from SATA drive

I have a problem, I can see my SATA drive in disk management, but I can't access the files from it.

Some background...
I had three hard drives in my pc, two IDE and one SATA. But one of the IDE drives failed so i had to remove it. I reformated one of the other IDE drive and made it my system drive. Now when I try to access my files on the SATA drive I can't see it in "My Computer". However, when I go through Disk Management, I see it. But it does not have a Drive letter associated with it and I can't explore it.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get to the files on this drive?

Thank you.

Send a message via Yahoo to intercodes


From the device manager, reinstall your sata controller drivers and it should work.
