When XP first came out, some applications that worked with Windows 98 turned out to be incompatible with XP (just like now the same thing's happening with Vista). Your Adaptec software is probably in that category. The easiest solution is to get some new burning software. These are two good free burner programs:

InfraRecorder (download from infrarecorder.org)
CDBurnerXP (download from cdburnerxp.se)

I've tried them both. Personally I like CDBurnerXP a little better, but they are very similar.

And did I mention they are free?

HOW DO YOU INSTALL A SECOND OS ON A SLAVE DRIVE. I AM RUNNING WINDOWS XP HOME EDITION. I WANT TO INSTALL WINDOWS 98 SECOND EDITION ON A SLAVE DRIVE DISC. SOME PROGRAMS I HAVE WILL NOT WORK ON XP.


You cannot install 98 directly on your system slave drive, but there is a way to install it.

1) disconnect your primary drive
2) make your slave drive as primary.
3) install 98
4) Connect your actual primary drive again and start your system

XP records your mac id of your motherboard and 98 does not records, the other way is, you can install both the OPS on your one primary drive by creating different partitions, you will need to full format your drive first.

1) Full format your primary drive.
2) Create partitions.
3) Install 98.
4) Install XP in different drive of your same hard disk

You will be able to see both your OPS when you start your system.

Install XP on SCSI HDD - Instellistation Z Pro 6223-CTO


Have you tried putting the drivers on a flash drive.

It is a method I have used to get drivers into the windows install.
Try it with the "press F6 to install drivers" during the text setup phase but make sure they are the dos level drivers that you try first !

If that fails then try the windows level drivers

Worked quite well on lots of early SATA stuff so you have nothing to loose.
You might also want to check that the various usb settings in bios are set to legacy etc too.

Upgrading the OS Windows XP not possible


Upgrading from OS Windows XP:

you can upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista(ultimate, premium, home, business.......),
you have to buy a Windows Vista CD and install a fresh copy or format.

Some Minimum Requirements:

i) Min 2GB RAM or atleast 1GB RAM(if you have>1GB RAM installation of Windows Vista will not continue)

II) External Graphic Card. for some versions of Windows Vista(to run Aero Interface, special feature only   in some versions of Windows Vista)

NOTE:

"Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor" is a software from Microsoft which you can download from internet, this  can help you determine which features and edition of Windows Vista will run on your computer. 

 i.e., when u load this software on windows xp it will suggest which upgrade version of windows vista          will suit your system(based on you system configuration. or hardware components.) and then            you can install the upgraded version of windows xp(mostly windows vista home,.........)


Thanking You

You can Try these Steps :-
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Method 1: Remove the Adaptec CD-Burning Plug-in in Media Player version 7.x
Follow the steps below to remove the Adaptec CD-Burning Plug-in from Media Player version 7.x. Windows Media Player version 8 that came pre-installed in Windows XP does not display this issue.
Click Start , Settings , and then Control Panel .
Double-click Add/Remove Programs .
If installed, Windows Media Player 7.x will be presented in the list.
Click the Change/Remove button.
The Windows Media Component Setup window should be displayed. The radio button next to Remove Windows Media Player components should be selected. Click Next .
Place a check in the box next to Adaptec CD-Burning Plug-in . Click Next .
The Adaptec CD-Burning Plug-in will be removed from the computer. Click Restart to complete the operation.
Method 2: Removing the Upper and Lower Filter registry keys
The second method for resolving this issue is to remove the registry keys associated with the loading of CD recording drivers. Follow the steps below precisely to resolve the issue. Exporting the registry is imperative before making any changes to the registry. If mistakes are made during the editing process, the registry can normally be repaired with the exported registry.
Step 1: Remove upper and lower filters
The steps below describe how to remove the drivers associated with the drives disappearing. After removing the filter driver keys, the CD recording software will be have to be re-installed.
With a copy of the registry exported, click the plus signs [+] in front of the follow keys in the order they are listed: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE , SYSTEM , and then ControlSet . In some cases, multiple ControlSets may be listed similar to the following:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002
or
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002
Click the plus sign [+] in front of either CurrentControlSet or the lowest numbered ControlSet. For example, in the second list above, ControlSet001 would be the correct listing.
Click the plus sign [+] in front of Control.
Click the plus sign [+] in front of Control.
Click the plus sign [+] in front of Class.
Locate the following key and highlight it in the left window of the Registry Editor (The numbers can be very similar, be careful select the correct key. Another method to find the correct key is to highlight Class, then cut and paste the key below into a Find window accessed from Edit and Find in the Registry Editor.)
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
With the key highlighted, the right pane will have multiple keys listed including LowerFilters and UpperFilters. Highlight LowerFilters and press the Delete (Del) on the keyboard. A confirmation dialog box will be displayed asking if the value should be deleted. Click Yes to delete the value.
Repeat the process for the UpperFilters by highlighting UpperFilters, pressing the Delete (Del) key on the keyboard and again confirming the value should be deleted by clicking Yes.
Exit the Registry Editor
Restart the computer. The optical drives should then be recognized and available for use.
NOTE:- If the computer still does not recognize the drives, go back into the registry and repeat the above steps for editing the registry for each of the ControlSets listed on the customer’s system.
Step2: Reinstall the HP DVD / CD-Writer software
Deleting the LowerFilters and UpperFilters will prevent the previously installed recording software from operating successfully. The software that came with the HP CD-Writer or DVD Writer will need to be re-installed to function correctly. Follow the instructions included with your CD-Writer to re-install the software.

I had the same problem with an Intellistation 6868 for years. It just wouldn't load XP but ran fine on Windows 2000 SP4. I tried 3 different XP Installation CD's with no luck. After several attempts at installing XP I bought a clean XP Upgrade from ebay.

It took me 3 goes to install it but eventually I got it in there. If you can get XP to start on the 6868 press F8 and start it in safe mode first then when it's booted fully, shut it down and and then start it clean again. It worked for me. I've been running it for 5 months now and it's fine.

I couldn't get it to work at all on the 6868's onboard IDE so I installed a PCI Raid Card and it boots fine on that.

System:
IBM 6868 52A M-Pro Intellistation
2 x Intel P3 866 CPU's 256 mb cache
2 GB ECC RD Ram
2 x Seagate 320 GB 8MB Cache HDD on a Sunix ATA133 PCI Raid Card
2 x Seagate 10000 rpm SCSI HDD on Adaptec Raid Card
ATI 9520 AGP 128mb Graphics

Need new software to download scanner information from cd as cd is for windows98/2000/millennium only and my new computor is windows vista.


Downloading the software from the cd wont help you. But you can just try running it and seeing if it will install. Windows Vista needs specific drivers for scanners, if it doesnt detect the scanner and install it then you need to go to the scanner manufacturer website and see if they have an update. or you can use a progra like VueScan, it doesnt need the drivers installed it will install the scanner and allow you to scan whatever u need

Hope that helps
