I want to format an 80gig slave hard drive in Windows 98SE but it does not reconise the full size,I am useing Adaptec drive preparer software!
I have no trouble if the drive is 39gig or under.Please help?

use the software that the drive manufacturer provides. For Maxtor, Max Blast or Seagate Disc Wizard, or is a different manufacturer?

As LastChip mentioned use the Drive Mfrs Software.

If you bought an OEM drive and didn't get any software, then go to the Mfrs web site & download it.
