Default Data Transfer

I have a harddrive with some data on it from an old computer. The model number of the HDD is st340016a and it is a Seagate Barracuda ATA IV.

The technical specifications for it are found here:

The format of the HDD is Ultra ATA.

The computer that I have the harddrive hooked up into is a Compaq Presio 5bw130. It is running Windows 98.


Now for my problem. When I boot up the computer, (yes I have the cables and jumpers properly set), I get a screen saying that the drivers for my new device have not been found. So I cannot open up my computer and transfer the files from my old HDD to my new one. But I checked out seagates website, and it says the HDD does not require any additional outside drivers.

Thanks in advance to anyone who offers time to help me with this problem.
Karma/rep is always appreciated
