I would suggest going to an Apple store and asking the folks at the genius bar. I'm not sure if you want to try and reconfigure your motherboard by yourself.

Go to the applications folder and then utilities and open up disk utility once opened select your 320 gig hard drive and under the tabs click on erase, select Format "Mac OS Extended (Journaled) then name your hard drive and then click on the erase button. Remember this will erase everything on the hard drive. Hope this helps.

Macbook wont recognize 500 gig My Book


Hi,

Having tried 2 cables you should now try it on a different computer. Chances are there is a failure inside the enclosure but you will know for sure if it also fails to recognize on another PC.

Once you're tried that, if it does work on the other computer the problem is corruption in your Mac, archive and re-install the Mac, if it doesn't work on the other computer then take it to your local PC shop or parts vendor and have them move the drive into a different enclosure for testing.

If it works in the new enclosure, buy it and your on your way. If it fails to work even in the new enclosure then you will need the help of a pro to get at the files, if that is the case, reply back with your Country, State and city and I will direct you to an appropriate pro.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Syntax SV266A Motherboard Hard Drive update


Hi,
i,d suggest an 80-120 gig hard drive should be sufficent.
if you require larger drive storage. you can add an external hard-drive via USB upto 500 gig usually without restriction.
You can also purchase An PCI Card, with sata connectors. should you wish to take that option. all the above is dependant on how modern your computer system/systems bios Is.

Wrong Hard Drive Capacity


Any hard drive larger than 130GB have to be installed using Windows XP SP2. Windows disks, Pre SP2, will not recognize the large hard drive on 130gb of drive.

Formatted (on PC) 1TB WD hard drive cannot be altered on Macbook


What OS are you running? What is it formatted as FAT32 or NTFS and how big are the partitions. Various operating systems, hardware and formatting schemes have different limitations. If you want to use the drive in Leopard formatted with NTFS which is the only way to create partitions larger than 20 or 30 GB you may need to install an NTFS file system driver like FUSE.
The other option is to format it as HFS and install Macdrive 7 in Windows to use Mac formatted drives in Windows.

Hope this helps.

Motherboard won't recognize more than 32 gigs of hard drive


this is old pc or bios, the reason it doesn't recognise a larger hard drive is because the bios doesn't support 64bit addressing, therefore you need a bios flash to update it. i need the motherboards full model number and i can see if i can locate one for you

Bios won't reconise 160 gig maxtor harddrive


You could try a BIOS update to increase the size of the Drive the BIOS is able to see.

The second last one indicates that drive sizes are supported over 65GB. It may still not be able to see the 160GB HDD, but this is your only option with this Board. You could always upgrade the Motherboard to support larger drives.

Good Luck.
