6.22 did not have native USB support - that didn't come about until
Are you running CONFIG.SYS drivers for it?
If you can find an original copy of COMPAQ MS-DOS 3.31, that was
originally available on 1.2M and 1.4M
Zenith MS-DOS 3.31 is another popular choice.
Try to find it, rather than opening the PC-DOS 3.30. 3.30 (and all
earlier) did not support HDD >32M, although there were ways to cheat that
limitation, such as the network redirector (with MSCDEX) coul make a local
drive LOOK like it was a network drive elsewhere.
