|Using XP pro, I have a second hard (ide) drive in my computer (already formatted FAT32 when it was used in Win98SE and has lots of data on it (I still can boot off this drive to use Win98), When boot up in XP pro using my main drive,: refer the Disk Management tool in Administrator tools, XP sees this second drive and calls it healthy and Active, but the only option is to delete partition (ie I cant but want to assign a letter to it , and also I cannot actually access this disk in normal ways eg.. via My Computer to read or write files (there it cannot be seen, only my main drive is there (drive c)?|
Note ...If I boot from this win98se drive that XP wont give a drive letter to, I have no probs and can read write to both drives as expected (both FAT32 format).
Note booted in XP via computer management, storage, disks..Also, when right click on the disk icon I get the option of "convert to dynamic disk". Does anyone know if converting to dynamic disk will allow me to assign a letter to the drive? Thanks in advance. Ray
