Default Partition Magic Issue

A friend of mine dropped of a new hard drive on me he was trying to resize with partition magic 8.0 The deal is, it's an 80gb drive, was first recognized as 74.5 he said. He tried to set a partition, and now the drive is only recognized as 32.6gb. So, somewhere down the process of trying, he has done I don't know what to it, as I can pull the partitions, but still only see the 32.6gb ..
So how can I get it back to the full 74.5gb?
I have tried pulling his parititons off, and it just sits at 32. Fdisk will delelte the parition, but it too only sees 32. When I look at it in partition magic, it has an 8mb section as primary which I can del, but it doesn't do much other than that. So I'm stumped as to what to do next ..
It's set as fat 32 if that matters much.
