Hi Funky Fish,
If you're WD is an IDE drive please re-check the pin setting on the drive. Please download. Data lifeguard diagnostic software from WD's web site. Use their bootable software to seup you're drive. http://support.wdc.com/download/index.asp?cxml=n
After which you're drive will show the correct size.

Enjoy!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

My computer does not recognise simpletech 250GB HDD drive when connected. The lights glow only. Earlier I had used this on my TV. Could it be that the system got corrupted


Buy an external USB hub that has an AC power adapter.
Your computer is not providing enough power to spin up the drive.
A self powered hub will provide the necessary power. 7 Port USB 2 0 HUB AC Adapter Monoprice com

My computer is not recognizing my Western Digital passport elite what do I do?


Have to check it in the Device Manager that the new device have been detected or not. It may happen that when the external HDD connects to the computer for the first time computer cannot detect it as it is not properly formatted in proper file-system. Open Computer Management and click on Disk Management and format the device correctly to operate.

Laptop suddenly stopped recognising my external USB hard drive


I had the same exact problem with a WD2500xms passport. The problem was the USB cable. I went to the store and bought a 6' USB cable ( $26 at Radio Shack) with the same specs and now, no more problems. Also I called WD technical support (800.275.4932) and asked for a new cable. The WD customer serverice was very helpful and said it would sending me a new cable for free. When it arrives I'll return the 6'er.

Trying to format a 500GB HDD at full capacity


check your bios if the disk is recognized as 500gb first. if it is not recognized, update your motherboard bios. most updates are available in their manufacturers site.
