I see you built the PC yourself, is the LS 120 external or internal?

I used to do that too then I retired! Actually if I hadn't gotten non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and had to go through chemotherapy my brain might still want to build pc's. I was going to suggest that you try it in another PC on the off chance it gives you the same problem since I don't think Windows 7 does anything but treat an LS 120 as an IDE device which means MS drivers would be all it needed.

You led me to my next thought and that was to try it with a USB enclosure. I don't understand why W7 would not format the disks it's simply a 120Mb IDE disk.......

LS-120 support broken here as well

Drive works perfectly under DOS, XP, and Ubuntu. Under Windows 7 it won't even mount a disk.
