I have installed a second hard drive to my system. The PC recognises the drive and everything is working fine but it is only being recognised as a 40gb when it is an 80gb. Could someone please tell me why? Thank you.

I am running Windows XP with service pack 2. I have checked in the bios and it is recognising one as sp40 and one as an sp80 (both Samsung). I also have Belarc Advisor and thats telling me that there is 76.68gb free but in my computer it says it is a 40gb. It was purchased as an OEM product. Thanks for everyones help.
