If your running XP add service Pack 2

If your running 2k then add Service Pack 4 and the drivers for the HDD from the manufacturers website.

Also you will want to make sure its properly formatted under a setup that recognises more than 137Gb.

You may also want to update your bios as it may not recognise this size drive.
