Hello

I recently installed a PCI SATA card and a 320gb Maxtor HDD with it. I accidentally made the HDD a dynamic volume, and would like to turn it back into a basic volume.

I've followed the M$ instructions, and deleted all (dynamic) volumes on the disk, then used the 'Convert to Basic Disk' command in the XP Disk Management console. Unfortunately, it won't let me, giving an error message that the "object is active". Rebooting and tring to format the HDD haven't helped.

Any ideas?

Thanks :)
