    Hi group
    I have my Maxtor 120gb external USB 2 hard drive formatted with Both
    NTFS and FAT32 partitions.

    This drive and the partitions are visible from Win XP pro.

    Using Gghost 8 i have created a boot floppy disk set with USB support.
    When booting with the floppy and choosing the peer to peer USB option
    the program says it cannot find the cable.

    I created the disks in WinXP pro with service pack2 installed and this
    is the partition I am trying to Ghost from PC DOS.

    Any clues to what i need to do please?

    Well, think about this. "Peer to Peer" is for computer to computer
    operation.

    What you need is a boot disk with USB drivers for the USB hard disk
    for DOS.

    Or to use something else to GHOST to ...
