You don' t say what OS or even type of computer (PC, Mac, Windows XP, 98, vista etc) you are running, or whether the drive has been used before. If it's a new drive then it probably needs formatting, so you can allow the OS to do that. If it contains data that you need then DO NOT allow the OS to format it.

If you know it is formatted & contains data, then it sounds like the OS is not recognising the format. Windows 98 typically won't recognise NTFS disks formatted on Windows XP for example or Linux Ext3/4 format disks won't be recognised by Windows. In the latter case, you can download a free driver which will do that for you - google Ext 4 and Windows.

Maximum size of hard disk supported


Hi Bijay.
Neither is at fault. Please click on this Seagate link:
http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=How_To_Install_and_Troubleshoot_ATA_Hard_Drives&vgnextoid=559e5b1142aec010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD
Scroll down to: Partitioning the drive in Windows XP / Windows 2000 (for systems where this is the 2nd drive in the system).
Follow the instruction on the web site.
This Seagate web site will help you setup the Seagate 160 drive.

If you feel the drive is still at fault you can run Seagate’s SeaTools. Click on the next link:
http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
This software will check the 160GB drive.
(Follow the online instructions for), SeaTools for DOS.

In a Windows XP system & using a FAT 32 & a cluster size of 16kb instead of NTFS. Windows will see the total size of the drive but can only access 149GB of drive space. 11GB of drive space will be used by the FAT. File Allocation Table. The FAT is windows guide to every cluster on the drive.
XP uses NTFS & sets each cluster to 4kb. This 4kb size lowers the total usable GB size & uses more GB's for the FAT. You're 127GB size may be correct for a Win XP system using a NTFS file system. The FAT is using 33GB of drive space as a locator for every cluster on the 160GB drive.
Help with understanding the NTFS file system: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/expert/russel_october01.mspx

Bijay if you are still having trouble understanding please post any questions here.

Good luck!

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
