Hoping someone here has done this before and can help me out. I have an IDE hard drive that was used in a FireWire case hooked up to my PC. The drive worked fine, but I recently decided to remove it from its FW case and install it inside the PC case as an additional audio drive for GigaStudio.
I connected the power and data cables and started up. I can see it in the Device Manager list. It is properly identified as an IBM DTLA drive, but I do not see it appear as a drive in the \"My Computer\" window. There is data on the drive, so I don\'t want to reformat it unless really necessary.
What is strange is that if I check off the box under its \"Device Manager-->Settings\" window that says \"Removeable\", then it shows up as a removeable drive after I restart. The problem is that I want to make it \"non-removeable\" by installing it as another IDE drive!
Thanks for your help. I am running Windows98 SE. The drive was working fine as an external FW drive formatted with FAT32.
