Hi I have a hard drive that has a DOS format (it was for a drum machine of mine) I was wondering if I could get it to mount in OS 9 and get the files off of it even though it is a DOS drive, will it be recognized and if not is there a utility to do this?

Yes. To do so, follow the following steps:

1. Make sure File Exchange is turned on in Extensions Manager.
2. If the device is SCSI, or if File Exchange was turned off, turn the computer off.
3. Attach the drive to the computer.
4. If you turned the computer off in step 2, turn it on.
5. Open the File Exchange control panel.
6. Under PC Exchange, push the Mount Now button.
