Tip & How-To about Maxtor DiamondMax 10 200 GB Hard Drive
My name is Robert Bostick Sr.
I installed the above listed (200GB) Maxtor hard drive without any problems. However, this is where I discovered that all HD's will only recognize approximatly. 135GB.and that an Adapter PCI PC board would have to be installed to be able to recognize all 200GB. The remainder is not lost, but is installed like a second hard drive, but can only be used as a over flow space or for my music or photos. So, its not entirely bad. However, I want all 200. I have a new WD 80GB I could use for either my music or photos.
I read somewhere that I need a PCI Adapter for the computer to recognize all of the 200GBs. This is what I purchased on line. I purchased a "Rosewill" ATA-133 2-port Adapter with RAID.Part Number RC-200. Will this adapter solve my problem. Looking through all of your people questions Ion your Web Site I''m surprised I did not see a question like this. I guess I'm the only stupid old man out there.
If possible could someone give me a hand with this inherent situation. Also, will the Adapter PCI board I purchased work for this HD,
thanks so much for your time,
Robert W. Bostick Sr.
