Gigabyte 945 gzm s2 doesn`t recognize HDD Western Digital 320 GB

You might need to change your bios settings from ide to sata. Have you already checked the bios settings? If everything is in order you might have a bad board. What have you tried so far?

How much Hard disk my motherboard D845GVSR will support.

There's not really a limit to how big a harddisk you can support. The only thing that can restrict you is the connection, because, for obvious reasons, you can't connect a SATA disk to an old IDE board, but it seems like you're aware of that.

You can just buy any SATA HDD you want!

Dear Sir I want to upgrade my hard disk to SATA 320 GB or SATA 250 GB. But my Motherboard is Intel Corporation D845GVSR and Bios Version is VA84510A.86A.0030.0402160229 System Bus Speed is 533 MHz Sys

No, don't use a convertor. Please buy a SATA PCI addon card.
like this

the above card will do alot better job than a converter, if you don't have sata and you don't have room for the card then its best that you buy IDE drive which 250GB or more.

thanks and good luck.

New hard drive not reconized, motherboard drivers

I had this problem on a computer recently. This particular motherboard may be needing the driver on the Windows XP SP2 disk. Your motherboard may have been made to use Microsoft SATA drivers. Othewise, there would have been a driver disk that came with the motherboard to let it see that SATA hard drive.
If it's a new hard drive, you have to reinstall the O/S so use a disk new enough to have SP2 included.

New Hard drive xp install

If your hard drive is SATA and your windows disk does not have SATA drivers on it it will not find the hard drive this is your problem
Go to the above site and download "driverpack mass storage" and slipstream into your windows CD.
