What file format does it use?? If it is in NTFS FAT 32 won't read it, but seems unlikely that if you have been a Win 98 user that you would have a drive formatted in NTFS.
It had to be formatted to put files on it.
Use a Win 98 boot floppy and use FDISK to see what it says about it. Don't FDISK it, just type FDISK status and select that drive to see what it says.
I have Just had to reinstall win98se, Now i cant access my second hard drive, It shows up in device manager but i cant get to it. I dont want to format it because it has all of my mp3's and videos on it, How do i assign it a drive letter?????
