New HDD with win xp
Posted 24 September 2001 - 06:30 AM
When I go to the device manager it's there and working ok.
BUt how do I format it so win xp will recognise it.
I have partition magic but it wont work with win xp
Any help would be most appreciated

Perhaps you do need to format it, Partition Magic 7 works with XP, although personally I would use FDISK in DOS.

Sounds good, theres a few features in XP ive still not tried out, but id not even heard of this one!
and yes, a drive has to be formated and have at least one partition on it before you can use it, otherwise it just shows up in device manager and not in my computer
