SOURCE: Different WIndows operating systems on two hard drives

1) Try if Cable Select will work for you, meaning that the existing HDD will be Master, and the Quantum will be Slave. If there are problems in identifying the drives by BIOS, manually set the existing one to Master, and the Quantum to Slave.
2) You don't have to install anything on the second drive. The operating system has to be installed on the primary drive, from which the system boots.
3) If the Quantum drive does not contain anything useful, it would be advisable to go to Management Tools, Disk Management and delete the partition from it, re-create it, and format as NTFS - under WinMe it was surely formatted as FAT32, which has a file size limit of 2GB and doesn't let you set any access permissions.
If you don't need NTFS, then at least re-formatting the drive would be advisable, as it's the simplest way to get a clean drive, without unwanted stuff (like WInMe, programs installed on it etc.) and no data fragmentation, that occurs with time and slows down the drive operation.
4) You might need to go to Disk Management anyway to assign a drive letter to your newly attached drive - most probably your existing drive is C, your CD/DVD is D, so you'll have to assign letter E to it, or better yet, some letter further in the alphabet, like Q for example - especially if you use external disk devices, like flash pendrives etc., which already were assigned the letter E when you used them.
5) With the harddrives so cheap nowadays, does it really make sense to use an old hdd? They have a finite life time, and the older the drive, the more chances are of it failing, and you losing your data. Maybe it would make more sense to buy a new ATA drive and use it instead?
Good luck, and don't forget to come back with a testimonial if helped :)

SOURCE: How can I access the contents of my Quantum

If the files were placed on the drive by another OS, like XP or Vista, then you may not be able to read them. If you can provide more detail we can probably get a better solution for you - rather than just guessing at what might cause the problems.....

P4c800-e gives error bios not loaded


this motherboard is supposed to have crash free BIOS an overclocking ability and power loss restart

is it happening on boot up the drivers have not been loaded or might not be detecting a bootable device the first things to check are the leads motherboard to your hard drive make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up also the same with computer ram and cmos battery and make sure the sockets are cleanThis message is generated by computers with SCSI / RAID controllers when no bootable drive is detected on the controller. This is not an error message unless you have a bootable drive on the SCSI / RAID or you are wanting to use a SCSI or RAID drive. If you are not using a SCSI or RAID drive and your computer has onboard a SCSI or RAID controller, this message can be disabled by entering the computer CMOS Set up and disabling the onboard SCSI or RAID During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart If your computer is unable to boot or you wish to restore the BIOS back to bootable settings and your computer uses an ACER BIOS, press and hold the F10 key as you turn on the computer. While continuing to hold the F10 key, you should hear two beeps indicating that the settings have been restored. AMI BIOS Older AMI BIOS could be restored back to bootable settings by pressing and holding the Insert key as the computer is booting.
BIOS / CMOS diskettes

Early 486, 386, and 286 computers may have required a floppy disk in order to enter the BIOS setup. These diskettes are known as ICU, BBU, and SCU disks. Because these diskettes are unique to your computer manufacturer, you must obtain the diskettes from them. See the computer manufacturers list for contact information. Early IBM computers Some models of early IBM computers required that the user press and hold both mouse buttons as the computer was booting in order to enter the BIOS setup.

Other suggestions
Finally, if none of the above suggestions help get you into your CMOS setup you can cause a stuck key error, which will usually cause the CMOS setup prompt to appear and remain until you press a key to continue. To do this press and hold any key on the keyboard and do not let go (you may get several beeps as you're doing this). Keep holding the key until the computer stops booting and you're prompted with an option to enter setup or to press another key to continue booting.
hope this helps

Problem putting a 30 gig quantum lct 15 3.5"series as a slave


Did you switch the jumper config back to Master or CableSelect before trying to install them as a single drive? Also check the Maxtor website, (they owned Quantum too), for the correct jumper settings. Some of these drives (like the Quantum Fireball lct series) need TWO jumpers not just one.That was the trick that fixed mine from not being recognized by the Bios or the Windows setup disk....I got it used with only a single jumper, but it needed two to put it Cable Select mode.

Quantum superloader not showing in windows device manager


First off, I have to say that I have had nightmares with Quantum tape libraries. It is possible that they are still manufacturing lemons. I had one replaced 4-times and it still did not work!

Start troubleshooting by making sure that it is identified by the controller card it is connected to. You should see this during the server POST before Windows starts. If you don't see it there then Windows definitely won't see it. Send it to Quantum for service.

If the controller sees it then make sure that you are using the Backup Exec drivers. Never use the manufacturer's drivers with Backup Exec. Veritas, now Symantec, has a downloadable utility called the Device Driver Installation Wizard that will make sure you have the correct driver loaded.

I hope this helps.

Toshiba DVD ROM SD M1302 driver


If you are using Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, NT or XP, and have an ATAPI/IDE CD/DVD drive, there is no driver needed (see Toshiba statement I have posted below). Under no circumstances, if DVD is properly installed and functional, will you need ANY driver!

If your DVD drive is a SCSI drive, then it may need drivers specific to the SCSI card you have installed (see the specs/manual or website for your card). You may also need the Adaptec SCSI setup, available at this address:

http://www.adaptec.com/worldwide/support/suppbyproduct.jsp?sess=no&language=English+US&cat=%2FTechnology%2FSCSI+Software&fromPage=driverindex

or use this address if you have a LOGIC based SCSI card or device:

http://www.lsilogic.com/

Now, if you meet the criteria for the first paragraph I wrote, and your PC does not load the driver automatically (after a reboot or two) then you have a PHYSICAL or HARDWARE problem. Either the DVD drive is improperly cabled, improperly installed or defective.

Those are all your options. See below, from Toshiba website
good luck

XP NOT RECOGNIZING BOTH Hd


Hi, considering that the 20G hdd was manufactured years back, it is possible that they are really at the end of their life. Being detected in the bios does not necessarily mean that everything is ok with the drive(s). You may want to try a third party partitioning/formatting software such as partition magic which however would need a second pc that is fully operational and install the fireballs either as secondary or slave. Another way is to download a diagnostic software from quantum dgdsk250.exe, install in a diskette and boot your on that diskette with your fireballs installed. it will perform factory std check-up and give you info re status of hdds. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up
