I replaced my second (slave) drive with a 200 rather than a 160, but the computer is only recognising it as 131. The jumper is in the correct position. I have tried reformatting, and have tried to partition it into two 100's but then it partitions at 99 and 31 - doh. I looked at the bios and according to the bios its a 200, and it is set to auto. Has anyone any ideas??
What make drive is it? Some HDD's have 2 jumper settings for master/slave, one limiting HDD size to about 130 gig and another with full capacity (samsung springs to mind). Also make sure you have all the XP update installed if XP is your OS as without any service packs it won't recognise anything larger than 137gig if I recall.
The hard drive is a 200bg western caviar 8mb cache 7200rpm ATA100, the operating system is windows XP and Service pack one is installed. I have the jumper set to master for this hard drive and slave for the other which is a western digital 160 gb, the computer recognises that one at 157, any help gratefully received
