hello i was wondering if anyone can help me, i recently installed a maxtor 8mb 250gb UIDE drive 6y250po. When installed it only recognizes as 127gb, ive read around everywhere and cant find a working fix. i tried Maxtor's big drive enabler, i have win sp2, done tons of stuff. i have a amd64 3200+ and soyo k8usa so i wouldnt think its the mobo needs to be updated but thats the only remaining thing i can think of and im kinda scared of flashing my bios. it doesnt even recognize on startup as 250 or even close, and when i installed windows too. its not partitioned or anything.. it just doesnt recognize full capacity.
i also have 2 maxtor 160 sata's that i had in RAID and now all the sudden only one works and my raid is broken?? i dont know what happened .. ive played with it a bit but it doesnt recognize 2 drives on startup only one it acts like one is actually broken, i dont know what could be wrong with it it seems to be running and whatnot.. sata cables?? anyway any help would be appreciated.
maxtor 250gb 8mbC (more or less
maxtor 160 sata RAID x2 (once again more or less)
