Windows XP will only format a drive to NTFS format. So, most likely, your drive is NTFS. I do not know if Windows ME will read an NTFS format drive.
Also, um.. there's no other cords? There should be a multi-wired/multi-colored cord that plugs into the back of the hard drive. It's an IDE power connector.
If you're still having trouble, contact me via AIM and I can probably help you out.
