    I have a Quantrum Fireball Plus hard drive I removed from an old windows 98
    formated it to NTFS. Having connected it to my computer (XP) as a back up
    storage disk the system does not regognize it, there is no sign of it
    anywhere on the system.
    Have tried as master and slave also tried another fireball disk that was
    working previously that was the formated in the same way and as I say worked.
    Look forward to replies
