    Just guessing but I bet you formatted the drive with WinXP. If you format the drive with Win98, WinXP should see it.

    If that's not the case you're probably facing a partition size limitation. Try splitting the drive into two partitions and see if that helps.

    You can find more information about partitions and other low-level information at http://www.howtorecoverdata.com.

    Good Luck!
