I have an old Maxtor OneTouch external USB hard drive. I think it is 100GB. Originally used on Windows 98 system Fat32 format. Last used on Windows XP system. I had 5 external USB hard drives hooked up to that computer. It died a few years back and 3 out of the 5 external hard drives plugged right in to another computer running Windows XP. This particular drive I am asking about plugs in, says it is installing software and then ready to use. For some reason it is not being assigned a drive letter so I can't access it. I get the same problem on both XP and 7.
Any help accessing it / assigning it a drive letter, would be greatly appreciated.
I did not find the disk labeled RAW nor did I have an option to change drive letter and paths.
This is what I get:
Right clicking on the bar my choices are:
New Simple Volume...
Right clicking on the label my choices are:
Convert to Dynamic Disk..
Convert to GPT Disk
Not sure what any of that means or what I should try. I was mistaken in my earlier post about drive size, it is 200GB, not 100GB. It was pretty much full and I'd rather not lose any data stored on it. It says it is 189.92GB Unallocated.
