I've got a lot of photos stored on LS120 high density disks from when I used on a PC using Windows98 some years ago.
Has anyone experience or knowledge of installing the LS 120 SuperDisc drive on Windows XP Home ?
Thanks

Just plug it in, xp will see it as a lsrge floppy.

jimv7 is right. Just set the jumper on the LS120 drive to CS, SL, or MA as appropriate for your system. Connect it to one of the IDE connections and plug in a power connector. The drive should be detected at boot up and can be used by XP just like any other drive without special drivers. Although it is connected to an IDE channel it can take drive letter A: if available or B: if A: is already taken by a floppy drive.

ls-120 disks do not like ntfs, if you get any problems temp change to fat32 to read the disk save the info to the hdd then revert back to ntfs.
