It is def a windows problem - BIOS recognises it is a maxtor 25o gig, windows explorer can't see it - have to go into Disk manager which can only see 128gig...got less than an hour to do this and pack the PC up...eeek!!

Dowload the maxblast software to enable the full use of the drive.

use Fdisk to check how much of your drive is set to be on a Primary dos partition,and if it isn't 100% than change it to 100%.I think that should solve the problem.Fdisk program should be on a normal windows start up disk as FDISK.EXE so make one if you don't already have it and try it out.
