I bought an extra harddrive the other day.
80gb Samsung 7200
serial number is: SP0802N (if it helps)
Anyway, its been added as a slave drive. I formatted, partitioned went through the usual set-up routine. Shows Capacity at 31.4 gb.... It shoudl be
I have partition magic 8.0, had a look in there, shows the harddrive as being 31.4gb also.
I've used FDISK to delete partitons etc. I even wondered on down to Bios
, brought up the info on it and changed the "sectors"
i think it was from 60 something, to 150 which changed the capacity of it to 80gb, but after i do that it resets it back to origianl size even after
i save it in Bios
, I dont know if im barking up the wrong tree. But i've tryed alsorts....
I'd really appreciate any comments, insight into this problem cant find much on it.
