WD Scorpio Black 320GB SATA drive

I bought the unit to upgrade my Laptop Dell XPS M1210, the original drive has 160GB. After cloning with PowerSuite 2009, the new (320GB) becomes 160GB and I asked Power suite and they suggest to use their Partition Genius to relaim the lost memory. But it doesn't work, I only get the 160GB out of the new WD.

I try reformatting the HD but nothing works.

Any syggestions?

Halarious, I had the same problem yet I used norton ghost. At least you still show 160 gb. Mine went all the way to 60 gb. Here is what I had to do to reclaim the lost. I downloaded something called "Magic Boot Disk" It gave me the whole 320 back yet have not found good cloning software yet. Magic Boot Disc is freeware avaliable at http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/2006.02.10-Magic-Boot-Disk/ Good luck cloning

You shouldn't have any problems. The computer uses SATA drives and the drive is SATA and is also a 2.5" laptop HDD. Make sure that you have a way to install an OS , etc

We cloned an older 58GB drive to a WD2500BEVT 250GB drive (using Acronis True Image 2011). The WD 250GB drive is now reporting as 58GB to BIOS. I've 0-filled it with different utilities. no...


Good day!!..As far us i know that cloning or ghosting should be the same specs of hard disk..Since you want to cloned the 58gb,so you should be use 58gb also and not 250 gb,thats why bios detecting some different utilities..ok thanks..

I am using SuperDuper to clone my 160GB MacBook Hard Drive to a 500GB Western Digital Scorpio Blue. My problem is that I cannot determine why neither the SuperDuper program nor the MacBook itself...


The Western Digital Scorpio Blue 500GB hard drive is formatted for PC, not Mac. The simplest way to get your MacBook to recognize this new drive--and therefore copy the files from your old drive--is to plug it in to a PC and format the drive. I was advised to format with FAT 16, as this would be recognized by my MacBook. Fortunately, the process was not that involved, since the Vista-driven PC found the drivers for the WD Scorpio Blue automatically. Once formatted, I safely removed the drive and plugged it into my MacBook via a USB port using a BYTECC Drive Mate. Magically, it now appeared on my MacBook Desktop and was recognized by the cloning software I was using, SuperDuper. Three hours later, the files on my old hard drive were successfully cloned onto the Scorpio Blue--except now I had an additional 364GB of storage space. Swapping out the old drive and replacing it with the new was not a big deal at all--just make sure you have the right screwdriver for the last task--a Torx #6. Mission accomplished.

DELL notebook hard disk upgraded to 320GB?


In my most humble assumption, I see no problems doing this. At the most a BIOS upgrade may be necessary; however a quick check at Dells support and drivers site will most likely show that your device has the latest BIOS available.

Dell's support is quick to state the original capabilities of their devices as shipped. Not downing any parties, they would rather you buy another product then continue with your previous purchase.


Let us know if you require any further assistance.

Thank you for choosing FixYa!
