adding a 2nd hard drive from old computer
I am having trouble with a second hard drive (from my old computer; OS is Windows 98) that has been added to my new computer which operates on XP Pro. I don't want to reformat the new hard drive because it holds some valuable information that I would like to get out of before doing so; however, when trying open any files or folders (which appear in symbols rather than words) I get the error message "the filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect". I must admit that I am not computer savvy when it comes to hardware and this may seem ignorant, but I have no idea where to start to fix the problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
