I bought a cheap 20GB Maxtor HDD which I want to use as external storage with a USB connected caddy and Windows 98.
When I connect and power up the drive using the caddy and a USB 2.0 port, I don't see it under My Computer.
When I connect another external HDD (a Lacie external drive rather than a caddy) via the same USB port on my PC, it's recognised and readable.
When I connect the same HDD, in it's caddy, to a laptop running XP, the drive is recognised and readable.
I've tried reformatting the drive from the laptop, setting the jumpers differently on the HDD (master/slave/CS) with no success - it's still not visible.
Any suggestions about where to go next?!
