System: HP Pavillion dv9702ea, 4GB RAM, Windows Vista SP1.
I recently upgraded my Pavillion dv9702ea by adding a second hard drive (Seagate ST9320421ASG Momentus G-Force 7200.3 320GB 16MB).
I normally use the laptop on an HP multimedia docking station, and I'd had no problem with it until I shut it down, undocked it, powered it back up (using the ac adaptor) and found that the laptop was no longer showing the extra drive.
I shut it down and connected it back to the docking station and the drive showed up. I thought it was just a glitch, so I un-docked it again, but the drive disappeared again.
I have seen posts on here from users who have dv9000 series laptops running with two drives, but I can't find out why mine on works when docked.

The username you are under is romploci, and I cannot find a erintrich - unless that is your proper name.
I changed the link in the original message, it should work now. Where are you trying to access it from?
Also, it is not generally good to roll back your software, because subsequent versions are introduced for greater compatibility with software and the operating system which you use. The feature you are wanting to use is actually already a feature of the Microsoft OS as I explained above.
If you want the latest software, here is a link where you can search for it and locate it :
