Hi,

Unfortunately for you, Win98 or Win95 can see the fat32 hard drive
information, but can not see the NTFS formatted drive. What you can
do is format the new drive to Fat32 and it will work. However, if you
format a drive, then you lose the data on that drive. In converse to
that a computer that is using WinXP can see both types of drives.
