Firstly, they are sata drives in an external enclosure which supports
both esata and usb....
In disk managment on Xp it says Basic 698.63GB Online Fat 32 Healthy.
(it was previously on NTFS giving me the same error in vista and i
reformatted to FAT 32 to get it to work with my PS3, which incidentally
doesnt seem to support it either, but thats another issue)
In vista it only appears in disk managment for about 2 seconds. and
then says "raw" instead of the fat32, then it disappears...
However, i just tried to replug my second 750gb drive which has just
been reformatted to fat 32 and it seems to recognise it......thus im
going to transfer my 650gb of data to see if it still works. both drives
are identical by brand and by enclosure. even used the same partition
software. might just be a faulty drive, in which case its still under
warranty. Ill let you guys know tomorrow if that has sorted it out.
Thanks for your input
