I have a Western Digital 250 gig hard drive which I am using on an external cradle which I use as a back up for my pc and laptop which are both less than a year old. How can I get the full capacity of the hard drive to work and not 128 gigs its reading. (I know that its not exactly 250 gigs) The model number is wd2500jb
