Help- install old internal hard drive

Can anyone guide me on installing an old Western Digital Internal Hard drive into an even older HP pavillion computer? I am trying to pull photos off the hard drive. When I hook up the hard drive as a slave, my old HP does not acknowledge its existence. (Hp running Win 98, Old drive taken out of a more recent Emachines running XP Home)


Is the drive shown in BIOS and under Hardware in Win98?

The drive may be in NTFS format, which can’t be accessed from Win98. If this is the problem, you can google for NTFS4DOS (freeware).

I will check…
