I have an odd hard drive problem. Recently, my primary hard drive quit working. Upon starting my PC, XP will begin to load and then just reboot. I moved it to another PC as a secondary drive and it says the drive is not formatted. (This PC is also running XP). I tried running Norton Disk Doctor (the 2005 version) and it says it can't examine the drive because there is no valid file system.
Here's the odd thing... Since the drive was FAT32, I decided to boot from a DOS diskette. DOS reads the drive with no problem. All my files are there. I also made the questionable drive a secondary drive on a PC running Windows 98, and it reads the drive fine as well.
Why can't XP read it... even as a second drive? Anyone have a clue?
