Hello. Last year I bought a 160 gb WD ide drive and installed as a slave on my computer which was running windows ME, only to be disappointed to find out that ME doesn't support drives that big so I had to format it at 127 GB. So that's what I did. Recently I got a new dell which of course is running XP and I intalled the drive into that as a second drive (which was a story in itself, I got some education about the new sata connectors and ide cards). Well the plan was to transfer all the data over to the new primary drive (160 gb sata) and reformat the old one at full capacity, but when I go format it in XP there is only one option for capacity - 127 gb. So I stopped, and I haven't actually tried it yet. Any thought on how I can get full capacity out of my old drive?
Thanks for your help, computer gurus.
