Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
When i plug it in to usb port it only shows 297 i am runnings window xp home edition it is a verbatim please help my e mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
That sounds fair as heres the rule :-
size indicated by OS = nominal size of the hard drive - 7%
in your case 320GB - 7% (22.4GB) = 298GB
i have 1 tb hdd and can use 931 gb
and i have another 2 tb can use ONLY 1.81 tb.
It sucks but what to do...

Most commonly, 297 GB is the formatted capacity of the 320 GB hard drive. You can check if there is any unpartitioned space left on your hard drive. Right click My Computer, click Manage, click Disk Management, locate the hard drive which shows 297 GB (a big reactangle). If this rectangle is all the way from left to right, everything is fine. Else it will also show another rectangle next to it as Unpartitioned space which you can format and use.
