If I understand your problem correctly - You cannot!!
You will probably only get about 50 - 59gigs as the remainder will be overhead for a FAT (File Allocation Table).
A FAT is like a record of where things are located on your disc.
It contains info on where on the disc your files are, how your drive is formated, etc.

The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.

The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible.

Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drives PCB

Hope this helps.

Hi! I have a Samsung Spinpoint SV6003H HDD that I pulled out of an old computer, put it in a drive enclosure and connected it to my computer to use as an external drive. The problem I'm having it is keeps...

My experience has shown that there is a GREAT difference between different USB cables. I have had some which did not seem to transfer the power efficiently to the device. I've had others which would not make a connection to my computer at all.

I almost threw away a number of very expensive LiON batteries for my Sony camera because the USB cord I was using to charge the batteries in the camera was not working. Then I was surprised when a shorter USB cable from a cheap device worked just fine with my Sony camera, and I was able to charge all my batteries.

I have accumulated a number of different USB cords. And I try them all until I've run out of cords to try, or I find one that works.

Hard drive not showing in bios

It appears that your #2 hard disk has died. To test if it is faulty, remove the #2 drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into the USB port of a working computer. If the computer see it as an external USB drive and you can see the folders and open the files, then it is OK and the fault is possible the disk controller.
If the hard drive is not recognised then it is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Error with HDD and corrupt file data

There are three possible solutions. You can take back the playstation. Try removing the hard-drive from the side, undo the cap unscrew the middle screw from the hard-drive, move the drive to the left and pull it out. When out try cleaning it off and leaving it out for about 10 minutes then reinserting it. Make sure the playstation is unplugged for all these steps. Or you can re programer reformat the HDD. Generally the reason for this problem occurring is when you turn off the system while it's saving. You reformat you need an external hard-drive and some free time. Send me a message for further info on reformatting.

Splitting a 80 gig hdd into 2 sections

Hello douglasc, You will have to repartition your hard drive. I would suggest the use of an application called partition magic. It will allow you to partition your hard drive even though the OS is present on the system. It does this by first defragmenting your hard drive and the putting the unused sectors together and the used sectors together this way it makes the division of the sections easier. Now once the hard drive is defragmented it allows you to section the drive into different logical hard drives. Follow the instructions from the documentation and you will have a successful repartitioning. Thank you, Shuttle83
