  1. Does XP recognize a new removable drive?
    Did you also connect power to the drive?
    Is the drive compressed?
    Was the drive the original, or was it an add-on?

    Hello and Thank you very much for your response.
    It did recognize "new hardware" and the drive was the letter Q. It was powered up.
    It is the original drive from my old gateway computer. How would I know the drive is compressed?
  3. I don't think the drive was compressed. Thanks again!
