Win XP Pro SP3
Drive #5. SATA 1TB Seagate. Works fine. Is not a boot drive. Was initialized by XP SP3.
Disk Director 10 sees it fine. XP Disk manager sees it fine, says Partition type = MBR

Disk Director 11 (trial) on the same computer says Drive #5 is a SuperFloppy

Uninstalled DD 11, reinstalled licensed DD10. Drive #5 is fine.

Conclusion: Bug in DD11

What OS type is shown by DD11 for this drive (Highlight partition and then select Change Type)?

Is this SATA drive internal or external?


Windows 10 Pro 1703 RS edition.  TI2017 NG: Acronis Backup 11.7:50058, DD12:3223, vmProtect 7.0:5173, SnapDeploy 4

I had the same problem with Disk Director 11. I tried to create an image and it gave me an error that said MBR error 1. Please insert a floppy disk. I rolled back XP to a date prior to installing DD 11.
