Be careful when buying very large capacity hard drives. You need to make sure your motherboard/BIOS can support it first.

A friend bought a 160gb hard drive but his computer could only support up to 37gb. Fortunately, he bought a Maxtor and download maxblast 4 which sorted it out for him.

Give us a clue about the specification of your computer.

Operating system, existing hard disk drive, memory, graphics, sound etc...
