Question about EPoX EP-8VTAI Motherboard
Ok, this issue has been a huge pain in the butt for a long time. I have an EPoX EP-8VTAI motherboard with a VIA K880 chipset. My 80GB SATA drive works fine, but any larger drives I connect won't work. I have tried an external 300GB USP drive and it says it isn't formatted. I tried a 300GB PATA drive and got the same issue. I have tried all the driver updates I can think of. I can't even format the drives. Any method I try to use to format fails. Whaddaya think is wrong?
This mobo and many other 32-bit mobos can't support hard drives more than 160GB.
