Okay, let me preface this by saying, I'm pretty sure this would have been covered elsewhere on the board but I used the search function and couldn't find anything--so please be patient.

Anyway, I'm trying to get a FAT32 formatted main hard drive from a Windows 98 computer to act as a slave drive on my XP machine. I'm doing this to get the old files to the new computer.

I believe I've set the jumpers correctly. When I boot up and look in My Computer the slave does not show. The Add Hardware Wizard does see the drive and says it's working properly.

Also, and possibly most importantly, the Disk Manager sees the slave drive but doesn't allow me to add a drive letter or explore or do anything except repartition the drive--losing all of the files I'm trying to save.

Any advice? Thank you very much.

Matt
