  Installing WD 880JD in Raid 0 on a new system 
 Date Written 
Joe Grimm Nov 19, 2005, 09:07pm EST Report Abuse
Am I to use the DOS version of the Data lifeguard V.11? The XP version is too large for a FDD 1.44. Progress to date is that a raid 0 has been setup using F4. As the OS continues, F6 is not recognized. The setup CD continues until it arrives the install 3rd party raid SELECT S screen the FDD format is not recognized. I have received conflicting advise from the 2 involved mfgr's websites. An authoritative set of instructions would be most appreciated.

have you tried reading the floppy in another computer to see if it's bad?
maybe download a new set of drivers from the western digital website.
there should be no reason to use data lifeguard at this point if you've already formatted the drive.

Sounds like you've got the wrong end of the stick, Joe. The fact that you arrive at the "press S to install 3rd party drivers" screen means that your pressing of F6 has been recognised. Bin the data lifeguard tools-what you need on that floppy is the raid controller drivers for the controller you happen to be using. You should find them on you mobo driver disc, or you can download them from the manufacturers website.
