Hi

I have installed a second hard drive on my PC and will be used to hold audio data only. I have set the jumpers accordinly (Slave) and used the PCs CMOS to identify it - no problem.

The Operating System is Windows ME and the PC Boots perfectly.

My question is:
How do i partition/format this drive so that I can allocate a new Drive Letter for it thus enable me to access it?
With Windows XP (on another PC) I was able to partition/format a second Hard Drive using the Disk Management utility thats installed with XP.

Is there a Disk Management utility with Windows ME?

thanks

To format this drive, first take out the drive you don't want to be formatted (I don't think it's required, but I would if I were you just to be safe). Then, boot from a CD or a floppy disk which has DOS on it and run FDISK. You can then choose to add as many partitions as you want (or just one) and make it readable in windows.
