Thank you all for helping. The link given solved my problem completely.
Thank you very much indeed.
All the best.

The 2 settings as stated are correct, but o joy.
I think whats missing is the registry entry that is called upon to ensure
that the Initialize and Convert Wizard is activated for the user to
Initialize the un-formatted disk. When finished the Computer Management.
The Logical Disk Management says its not registered for Windows2000 and
The system must be scanning the ports to allow an all ready Initialized device
to be accessed, so whats missing?
All I can think of, is that this there has to be a run command that allows you
to re-register the LDM to the system and you would with the wmi.

There must be some one out there that can help, please.
Its very important to the system or new un-formatted drives can not be used.

All the best.

Computer Help / WindowsXP Pro sp3- Disk Management not working- Help.

Ok I should update but I am getting on a bit and very ill, so its not necessary for my needs.

The Disk Management program is not loaded due to some silly chap trying to speed up my
system without me knowing.
I no longer can fix and non-formatted drive so that I can format it.

Is there a way I can fix this without re-installing Windows. That would kill me as I have a
mass of stuff on the system. Need to format new drive to save things onto.
I need someone help if they can. please advise.

All the best.

I tried the windows repair to switch off the autorun feature for usb
on WindowsXP Pro sp3.
The script shows as "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" set to 95.
I tried it and it did not work.
I used regedit and manually set it to hex value fd (253) ad it worked.

Thought you may ant to know.
All the best.
