New hard drive problem

  JKAM 22:19 17 Aug 2004

Purchased a Samsung 60GB H/D, cannot get my computer to recognise it as 60GB, only 31GB. Tried FDISK, formatting, altering pin settings from general to 32GB Clip Pin Setting. Have run out of ideas, never experienced this before, help!

What OS are you using? If XP and you had created a partition for the C drive then the remainder needs to be activated w/in wins for it to be active and recognised.
