Second IDE drive won't allow long filenames?
Posted on 1997-09-06
I just installed a 1GB HD and when I pull it up under windows explorer, I cannot create or copy to it files with long files names; all filenames must conform to DOS filenameing convensions. How do I get it to accept long file names? Configuration and installation details follow:
Pentium-90MHz, 24MB RAM, Windows 95 Version 4.00.950
I installed drive on second IDE cable from motherboard,
BIOS recognized it okay and assigned it to D:
FDISKed it as a primary partician,
Formated it from the FORMAT menu item on its icon under MY COMPUTER.
SCANDISKed it fine.
