Windows98 can't see my old HD
Posted on 1998-11-01
Ok, here's the deal. I have a new computer running Windows 98 and I wanted to transfer a bunch of files over from my old Win 95a computer. I had an extra HD, so I put it in the old computer, reformatted it (the old computer couldn't read the FAT32), and copied the files over. When I turn on the computer it's detected just fine, but it doesn't show up in Windows98 or in DOS.
Am I missing something here? I ran the auto-detect in setup, both channels are enabled in Windows, and it's plugged into the primary IDE channel with jumpers set to slave. It worked fine in this configuration until I formatted it under 95a.
