My father has an HD in an old machine, Windows 3.1 old. I tried hooking the old HD up to our newer machines with an external USB enclosure. The problem is Windows won't load it as viewable. It shows up under Computer Management, but I can't assign it a drive letter or anything, and have no way of getting to the files. The drive itself is small, I just want to be able to copy the contents into a folder on the current HD. Anyone know how to do this in Windows XP. Do I need special software?
This is how the drives shows up under Computer Management.
For whatever reason it shows up as one FAT and one FAT32 drive, neither with a drive letter.
Thanks for any help or advice.
