Is this a new drive that you have just formatted?

If so look at the instructions on the top of the hard drive. Can you see a jumper setting for a 32 gig limitation, if so just remove the jumper.

Your hard drive will now be around 80gig.

Otherwise, it may be a limitation of your BIOS - early ones are limied to 32GB. Check the BIOS revision date.

Link won't work. Sorry. Do a search of the MS knowledgebase for FAT32
