SOURCE: How to install new hard drive
External drives have come a long way and run almost as fast as many internal drives. If your need for extra hard drive space is pretty much driven by the Microsoft Flight Simulator game, you could get by with using an external drive. A few things, though: Make sure your system is supporting USB 2.0 (it should be) and that the drive runs at least 5400rpm. External HDD's run off standard 120v AC power.
Otherwise, if you want to get an internal drive, you can certainly get another ATA-133 drive. But SATA is faster and your computer may support it. The D530 CMT (convertible mini-tower) definitely does. But there is also the D530 SFF (small form factor), and D530 USD (ultra slim desktop)--not sure if those are rigged for SATA support.
As for maximum hard disk size supported, that's up to the operating system (e.g. Windows XP vs. Vista). You likely won't need any bios updates because of a new hard drive installation. However, its not a bad idea to review the BIOS update release notes to see what they're addressing.

All of the above and you can also go to control panel/adm tools/disk management/click on the hard drive and click format..follow the wizard see if that does it..

What kind of resources are you pulling on the pc everyday? For example are you doing heavy writing to the drive everyday such as video editing, ripping etc and how much air flow is your pc getting. If the case gets too hot or warm for long periods of time it can cause the hard drive to fail quickly. Lastly check your power supply male sure its pputting out the proper voltage to the computer specifially the connection to the hard drive. If its not stable the nit will cause your hard drive to fail.
