Yes, I did say the letters RAW were there but I didn't realise that was of any significance. What is missing though is NTFS and I was wondering whether was of any importance to helpo finding the drive J. If I try to put anything in there it says it is no longer located on my machine?

Hope this helops.

According to your most recent screen shot, the J drive appears to be NTFS, healthy, active, and primary.

I'm unclear on the remaining issues.

Is the problem that the J drive is not usable? That you cannot put data on it by copying from another drive?

I agree. Ron : drive J seems to be healthy and can be see by your system, and is formatted to NTFS.

What trouble are you having with this drive?

When I try to put anything in it I am told this drive is not located on this computer?

Is this an internal drive, or an external drive?

Oh yes, all the time and the red led is constantly shining at the front of it too. I have a mind to take it to the computer centre this morning and get them to have a look at it. They have a whole host of analysing equipment. It would save a lot of hassle and if they can sort it, it would free up your time for other forum users who perhaps are not so lucky to have a center like ours.
