It sounds like you have a hard drive that is over 1 GB, and on 95 you need special drivers to allow larger hard drives.
When you formated C drive, you erased the driver that you had put on there from the drive's install disk.
If you can find your drive's install disk (yea right!) then you might be able to use it's installer program to get your D drive back in order. Check on the manufacturer's web site and maybe they allow you to download the program.
If you used a special program to format the C drive, then maybe check it to see if you might have locked the the D drive by accident.
There's no feature in windows (except for networking drives) that locks a drive read only, except for removable drives (did it maybe configure the drive as a removable?).
Did you try Norton or Nuts & Bolts to see if that gives you any info?
You can make folders read only, any chance that the folder you are writing to is read only? Right click on it and select properties to see if it is.
: windows 95B, generic mini-tower PC. IE 5.
: My hard drive is partitioned into C-drive, and D-drive.
: I recently re-formatted my C-drive, but not my D-drive.
: The C is fine, but when I try to download to D-drive, I get message saying, "this drive is Write Protected".
: Please help.
