Once windows has been updated to SP2 & all it's updates, than windows should show the correct drive size.

    I say this to so many people who have a problem with the bios reading the correct drive size but windows not. You need to go to the manufacture's web site for you're 500GB drive. One register you're drive there online. Two, download their bootable floppy disk software or their bootable CD software & use that software to setup the FAT. (File allocation table). Use the software & choose the cluster size you want & format the drive. Than reinstall winows. Do not over write windows, do a freash install & do not use windows to format the drive. That will fix you're issue.

Hi - I have a Dell E510 with a 160 gig RAID drive (or 2 160 gigs together). I swapped one out for a Western Digital 500Gig drive, but now I can't get the drive to show up on my computer. And the Intel...


You have to break the mirror of the raid assembly. There should be an option in the boot screen for you to control your assembly. You have to take away the raid settings in order for the HD's to stop replicating and act independantly.

Seagate 120 gig HD in Dynex enclosure not recognized by XP system


Ok, you didn't say if the drive had data or not? Anyway, if it is a drive with no data etc, you will first need to Initialize, & Format the drive before use. Is there any way you can connect it up to an "Internal" or "External" SATA port, & "See" if the drive is recognized, then at least you know the drive is OK.. Also try another USB port if available. If you know it is OK, then go to device manager and Uninstall the entire USB layer, reboot, it will re-install the USB again, with default settings, it NOW may be "Seen".

Have you been able to access the drive in the past? If so it might have become corrupt so do a reformat of the drive and format it to NTFS. You can also uninstall and reinstall the drive for your HD before doing this. Pretty much a last resort.

Dell Dimension E510- Trouble Reading DVD/DVD-Rom


open the pc and check the IDE cable and power cable for this drive if you only have 1 drive then the jumper should be on master . CD-rom drive and DVD-rom drive should connect to master on the jumper, CD-RW and DVD-RW should connect to slave on the jumper that if you have 2 drives on your pc. If you still have problem after you checked all these cable and jumper connection than problem maybe inside the drive check it open the drive to see if there is nothing stuck inside the drive and clean the laser light.
