Adding slave Hard drive

By videouk ·
Hi all,

My XP Pro PC died so I need to get files off its 2nd (slave) HHD. I thought that I would try to put it into my old Win 98 System to get access to the files but it cannot see to drive.

Any help would be great!

Most likely, your XP system was set up with the NTFS file system. Windows 98 cannot read NTFS volumes.

You either need to place the drive in a Windows 2000 or XP system, or get NTFS reader software.

Here are a couple of links to get you started:
