XP SP3 won't recognize a WIN 95 IDE HDD connected via USB Tags: Hard Drives Storage Last response: August 2, 2010 5:56 PM in Storage Share kmeghji August 2, 2010 12:38:34 AM Hello, I'm trying to connect an old laptop HDD (Windows 95) to my PC so I can clone the drive and run it in Virtual PC as needed. The drive is connected via an external IDE enclosure. I know that the enclosure works, I've can swap out the drive and it will work - I'm wondering if it has something to do with either the file system (FAT vs NTFS) or something else. Thanks in advance.
