Removable Storage Problem in NT

by Some Guy in Seattle In reply to Removable Storage Problem ...

NT is an older OS than Win98, so the NT Hardware Compatibility List is not usually up to date. Try installing the latest service pack. Then go to Microsoft's web site and look for the latest HCL to make sure that your drive is listed as being compatible. If not, then the last option is to find out from the drive manufacturer if they have updated drivers for their devices to make it work with NT.

Hope that helps,
