AM RUNNING NT4 WITH SERVICE PACK 3.
PROBLEM IS THAT NT WONT RECOGNISE MY HARDDRIVE (QUANTUM BIGFOOT CY43) WHICH IT WAS FOR AGES.  THIS OCCURED WITH AN UNEXPECTED NT CRASH.  

THE EVENT VIEWER HAS A REPEATED MESSAGE- SOURCE:IMGATAPI  TYPE:ERROR
"The driver has detected that device \Device\ScsiPort1 has old or out-of-date firmware. Reduced performance may result. " ALSO "The device, \Device\ScsiPort1, did not respond within the timeout period. ".
DO I NEED TO UPDATE MY DRIVER?  IF SO HOW?

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME,

MATTY.

One thing you can try is to first verify that the BIOS is recognizing that drive properly. Second, if  the drive has a FAT partition see if you can see it when booting up with a bootable DOS diskette. After that you can try re running the NT installation and do a repair. Before all of that you might want to just try reloading service pack 3.
