  1. BTW, I posted my setup here Now I figured out, what the error #110 in 16-bit version of PartitionMagic8 probably causes: As far as I know there are no two descriptions of the number of sectors in the partition table. The CHS description is meaningless here. But its looks like they are still using it: this is from the PM debug file: Disk 1: 243201 Cylinders, 255 Heads, 63 Sectors/Track. BiosExtensions: 0x2100 Subsets (0x00000001): Access The BIOS supports INT 13h extensions for this drive. ============================ Partition Tables ============================== Partition -----
  2. I use a Dawicontrol DC-150 vers 1.1 card to drive one 2TB HD. It has a SiI 3112A chip. The drivers I got from the manufacturers site at http://www.dawicontrol.com/html/raid.shtml Note that this is a somewhat older page, which you cannot access from their main site. If you scroll down to DC-150 RAID, you find the raid driver: Dawicontrol RAID BIOS 3.54 32-bit RAID Treiber Windows 2000/XP/Server2003/Vista Although it does not say "Windows 98" the dc150drv.zip includes a Win98 driver. Some of the files have later versions than what has been posted here so far. I also use the BIOS 3.54,
  3. Hello all, I have got a Hitachi 5K3000 2TB drive. It has 3.907.029.168 sectors of 512 byte size; thats 2000,4GB or 1.907.729,1 MiB. Let me just tell you what I have done: I formatted the HD with Paragon Partition Manager 11 under XP USB ( 1 extended Partition and 1 logical drive). Under Win98SE that worked, but the drive could not be used under DOS and scandskw and defrag reported "not enough memory", as known. Also behavior of DOS scandisk was odd. Partition Magic 8 reported errors like "wrong order" and "partition does not start at cylinder boundary", although is seems to show the correct si
  4. Hello, internal data of the new Seagate 3TB USB drive has just been published here: Link These data include a dump of the first 1MB of the drive and can be downloaded Download May be this can also help for Win98.
  5. Hi all, I got an 500GB IDE drive WD5000AAKB, made in XP one extended partition including one logical drive. I formatted it using fat32format -c32, i.e. with 16kB clusters instead of 32KB, so it has 30,508,600 clusters. Then I moved it into my Win98 system. With DriveImage2002 I made an image of another drive, which consists of about 42 files of 2GB size. I copied that repetitively to the 500GB drive until 95% was full. Up to this WinME ScanDskW and Defragment worked fine. Of course there was nothing to do for Defrag. I let DriveImage check some of the copied files. Then I started some work on
  6. Hello, I plan to copy a hd (about 100GB), there is mixed stuff on it, but its not the system partition. I know Win98SE explorer has some problems with large number of files, but can I really loose data? Or is it better to put the 2 hd's via USB on a XP system? Or any other suggestion? bye Wolfgang
  7. Hi Multibooter, thanks for the long replay. I'm collecting maps, for this even a TB drive is too small. The collection grows. If its necessary to have 2 partitions, then I would buy a smaller drive first and a second drive later. I dont like 2 partitions on a data drive, since reorganizing the data involves lots of copying and needs free space. I did the 48-bit upgrade and use the WinME utilities. Although I don't know whats their limit. I didnt think about how to partition and format the drive. fdisk has a 512MB limit, but the XP people have the same problem. PATA is outdated. The dealer here
  8. Hello, on ebay there are lots of cheap USB HDD cases offered. See for example here It is said that Win98 is supported, there is a driver CD. Some say that the chipset JM20337 is inside, others say that the speed is limited to 60MB/s due to the chipset. One should be able to put in any IDE or SATA HD no matter what disk size. (Yes, I have read the complete 48bit discussion and know about the 32bit limit) I need a disk drive which fits on both my Win98SE desktop and the XP Laptop. It should have one partition as large as possible. Does anybody run a 1TB HDD in such a case? Do you think it can be
