Windows ME

  Highland Guy 18:22 20 Jan 2007

Hi all, Could anyone tell me please if Win ME has the same problem as Win 98 in recognising large hard drives?

A friend is wanting to upgrade his Win 98 machine with a larger hard drive. Is there any known problems with this or should it be painless.

Many thanks in advance.

From memory I think there is the same 137GB limit with Windows ME as there was for 98SE. Limit caused by addressing restriction for ATAPI drives.

Many thanks for the info
