    I just plugged in a 120GB Maxtor hard drive (on top of my older 80GB). XP recognised it correctly and installed it, but it didn't designate a new drive letter for it.
    What should I do?

    Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management, I think you should be able to change/Add the drive letters there.

    Hope This Helps.

    Thanks guys, I'm so used to pre-formated drives that I simply didn't remember I should partition and format it.
