In what way. A 120 gb drive is only 114 Gb 1024 is a MEG when you get a drive and it says 500 gb It is not the same as 500GB. a kilo byte 1024 bytes not 1000 bytes it is misleading does this answer your question or is it something else

It looks like the max size was originally 120GB but I am not sure what BIOS updates may have been done to increase that. If you get a larger drive, you may have to make partitions of smaller sizes.

Max hard drive size for Toshiba Satellite 2430-S255


Unless you are running Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98 and your drive format is FAT16/32 and not NTFS, there should not be any problem with a high capacity drive. Don't make the HDD size too big: it may be costly. If you have money to burn get two drives, one internal system disk, and the other an external storage/ backup drive.

Acer Aspire 5002WLMi Laptop won't recognize full 320 Gigabytes of new PATA hard drive. It's always been running a 80 Gigabyte 4200 RPM but that drive is old...a 2005 HD. New WD320 only reads 137...


The BIOS in the ACER determines the maximum size of the hard drive it can support.
Check the laptop's specification to see the max size you can install in this model laptop.
It appears that the max size your laptop can support is 140 Gb (unformatted). 137Gb formatted.

I suggest you install a hard drive up to 140 Gb capacity in your laptop and place the 320 Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and when you attach this hard drive to the USB port in your ACER laptop then you will be able to get the full 320 Gb capacity after you delete the partition and create a 320 Gb partition and format the hard drive.

I have 2 questions:- 1. I have a hard disk of 80GB capacity.I want to augment my storage capacity with an additional Hard Disk of 500GB in the second slot of my CPU.Will my motherboard support that.My...


The motherboard has 2 memory slots with each slot allowing up to 1GB modules of DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200, DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. Do not mix RAM speeds.

As for hard drives, the board has the capacity of:

PATA (Parallel) - 2 x ATA100 4 Dev. Max
SATA 1.5 Gb/s - 2

I would assume that the 500GB drive you have is a SATA drive. and the 80GB as PATA. If that is the case, then the two drives would be on different controllers and would work in the system. Typically, it is recommended that the SATA drives is the main hard drive holding your OS.

As always, you would need an open bay in your computer case as well as adequate power to the PWS to complete the installation.

Windows xp shows hard drive as 30g. I have diamond max plus 9 120gb model 6y120PO s/n y25W76E bios shows maxtor 6y120PO capacity 33821mb


It is probably partitioned. Right click on "my computer" select "Manage" and then look at the disk manager. You will find that the rest of the drive is there, but un partitioned and un formatted.

There is no max size when it comes to hard drives. Go as big as you want or can get.
