Purchase Maxtor 160 gig HDD to use as a desktop, also purchased a USB2Tech Caddy, Fdisked & formatted, fitted to the computer via USB2, it is showing 137 gig and is working perfectly, can somebody tell me where my 23 gig as gone. Your knowledge on this would be most appreciated.
Done a search on google, seems to be a problem with lots of people all the world over, in that I think HDD have become massive & the LBA on older mobo's (like mine ECS K7S5A 1.0 )perhaps don't support anything above 127gig!!! or is it something to do with IDE support on mobo or is it software ( SP1) should be installed, but I have (SP2) and every update available, hope it's not a registry problem. buscrew........I've checked that out as well, and apparently it doesn't fool it either.
