Question about Samsung SpinPoint P80 SP0802N 80 GB Hard Drive
I installed a second HDD to my PC as Slave.
It's a SP0812N and should be 80 Gb. The master is a WD 120 Gb. BIOS identifies the model correctly but with 32 Gb only. Is there something in my motherboard that limits the HDD size?
this mainly depends on The Operating system, if your using Windows 2000 or above it should,nt be an issue.
sometimes there are limitations on 2 hard-drives sharing the same IDE channel on the mainboard.
Try putting the second hard-drive on the secondary motherboard slot, with it,s own individual cable.
If non of the above works, it,s possibly not formatting correctly.
you,ll need a program that zeros then formats the drive.
Hope this helps.
