Question about Western Digital WD2500AAJB 250 GB EIDE Hard Drive
Make sure you have the latest service pack for Windows 2000 - this fix will NOT work on service pack 2 or earlier.
The reason you cannot see the drive right is that 2000 doesn't have big LBA enabled, and thus has a 137GB drive size limit.
To enable 48-bit LBA large-disk support in the registry:
1.Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
2.Locate and then click the following key in the registry:
3.In the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
Value name: EnableBigLba
Data type: REG_DWORD
Value data: 0x1
4. Quit Registry Editor.
You should now reboot, and then you should be able to use your drive.
