Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST380011A 80 GB Hard Drive
My Dell 8300's XP crashed. I took its Seagate st380011a HD out and installed it on my older Dell 4300 as a slave, in order to rescue my data files. I was glad on booting the 4300 to see that it noted the presence of the st380011a by name. Other checks show the drive's name, size it correctly (75GB), and confirm that it is installed as slave. But nothing I do seems to make it list my files. Depending on what I try I get error messages like "not formatted -- would you like to?" or "does not have a recognizable file system". I even tried to bring the files up via a DOS prompt (start-run-cmd .. ) but still no luck. I would greatly appreciate any ideas/suggestions. Thanks! -- Lastime
What kind of Windows do you have on the 4300 most likely the reason is file systems. The XP has NTFS file system and is not readable under Windows 98 SE if that is what you have on your 4300 computer. An option that you have is to update the 4300 to an XP to read the data on the drive.
