|Trying to determine what hard drive limitations may have been on the Win98 computer. That was the reason for the model info request. Dynamic Disk Overlay allows a non compatible hard drive to operate on a system where it normally couldn't. |
If the drive was installed using a DDO it can't be transferred to another computer without using the SAME overlay program. I can't say definitively if this is the reason the drive is not working in the enclosure. Could be the fact it is only 8GB and is not compatible with the enclosure.
To eliminate that possibility I suggest you connect internally or possibly restore to the original location and then use one of several available methods to get the info off that computer.
The simplest might be a Network adapter and crossover cable. Certainly not the only possibility. If a DDO is in use, restoring the drive to the original location is by far the easiest method.
If the old Win98 computer has USB 1.1 capability that is slow but should still work to transfer something less than 8GB of data.
