This is because "the original ATA specification used a 28-bit addressing mode, allowing for the addressing of 228 (268,435,456) sectors (blocks) of 512 bytes each, resulting in a maximum capacity of about 137 gigabytes" (wikipedia). To fix this try upgrading your computer's bios and enabling any bios entries for larger disks. Also make sure that you are running your operating system with all of the current updates.

I just need to download the driver for a fresh install. Thanks


If you are installing Windows XP or greater on on hardware that is not more than a few years old, you should not need to download a driver, the drives should be recognized automatically during the install.

I install a 320Gb HD on my desktop the BIOS recognize the 320 Gb, but when I try to install windows xp it only shows me 137 Gb.


That means you have already partitioned your HDD to Linux. Linux partitions are not recognized from windows XP so, use a bootable partitioner like partition magic to recover your 193GB.

WD Caviar SE16 WD3200AAKS 320GB 7200 not recognized at install


Windows XP does not have built in SATA drivers. You will need to download the XP drivers from Western Digital's website and install before the computer will allow you to format and use your new drive. Hope this helps.

Maxtor Basics 320 GB external harddrive cant be recognized


There's a good chance the shop you bought the drive from didn't have SP3 installed. For some reason, SP3 has an issue with USB peripheral devices. Windows has created a patch to rectify the problem. Click on the link below and install the "Fixit" patch to enable your PC to recognize your HD. Best of luck.

Trying to partition internal hard drive, taking along time!


Windows 98 thru Vista will partition format the hard drive during installation. Starting with XP, it can handle partitions over 1GB (1000MB).
If it is a new drive, let windows do a "quick format" during installation.
