winXP and disk format conflicts
- View Source1) Re: "Unknown device problem" by Tony Palermo
Works GREAT on my 98 & ME machines. But Xp doesn't seem to offer
"unsupported drivers" in the list!! Any workarounds??
--How do I set properties of the Kz Hd to "removable" in Xp?
I recently added a new xp sp1 P4 3.2Ghz system. "Old" was win98. I am
through SCSI to an Kurzweil Hd formatted to FAT32, or FAT (not sure,
is the proprietary format to kurzweil).
Reguardless, IT WORKS with my win98 and minME machines, seemlessly.
have to do on them, is boot up w/ SCSI connection to the
into device manager, and change the properties of it to "removable
and BAM, I'm in buisiness.
But on XP machine, :boot up, device mngr, and disk mngmnt, ALL
drive, "online", etc., but it does not show up in "my computer". This
point where, on 98 & ME, I can find it in device Mngr, and simply
click properties of it, and check the box-"removable drive", but no
option found in XP!!
---Ive tried reformatting the drive in every format through windows
NTFS, FAT32, FAT, AND from its host (Kurzweil seuto dos), but then
no cross platform, (either Kurzweil, or XP cant read files written to
from the other).
It seems that the difference of it WORKING beautifully (98 & ME) has
with my initial question. How do I make XP consider it to be
drive, as in 98 or ME??
- View SourceCan be
1/ termination problem : You new scsis card is more critical about termination
2/ XP sees the kurz as a device which nees a driver
i saw reports were after 8 tries XP stops
Use the drive externally : and switch the Kurzweil off is than a solution
3/ if it is the data format : you must have a backup or connect to a win98 machine and format the drive to Fat format
Best solution is : switch to linux ... No virus , stable , free and lots of tools
