Have you tried setting the jumpers on the new drive to CS (cable select) If you use that setting, the position of the drive on the cable determines whether it is master or slave. For example, the plug at theend of the IDE cable is the master and the plug in the middle of the cable would be slave. Just a suggestion. If you are using SATA, this does not apply.

My mb Asus K8N cant start using HDD WesternDigital WD3200AAJS


Unplug your computer.
On the end of the disk-drive, there is three-by-two grid of gold pins, labelled MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect). Move the jumper to the 'CS' position.

Start your computer.
Press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP.
Use "auto detect IDE drives", and the 160GB drive should be recognized.

Can not remove write protction on my seagate 250gb


If you look at the connector side of the drive itself, There are some jumper settings that either make the drive master, Or slave.. Limit the capacity, Or prevent write access.
The sticker on the top of the drive should have directions as to which jumper setting does what.

Only 32 gb of 250 gb hard drive is reconized


Hey,

If you look at the jumper settings on the drive, they are near the power connector and data cable, then look at the jumper info on top of the drive. I think the jumpers are set to limit space 32GB.

Adjust the jumpers.
Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

FITTING A GERICOM 160GB HARD DRIVE AS A SLAVE WINDOWS ME ?


You indicated that this is a windows ME system. Windows ME is a FAT 32 system. It is therefore limited to 32GB partitoins. This may present a problem that can be solved with a new OS. If the drive is also not reported in the system bios, there is also a motherboard limitation indicated. There may be a bios update to fix that, but it won't fix Windows ME.There may be a workaround: If the bios detects the drive, you can use fdisk to remove the current partitions, and create new FAT 32 partitions FIVE of them! at 32GB each.
