Hey guys, i just bought a 200gb hard drive, and my pc will only see it as a 127GB. Now this hard drive is attached to a maxtor ata133 pci card, and i'm also running windows xp (sp1) but it still doesnt see the whole 200GB's. I did read somthing about enabling 48-bit LBA support, or whatever it's called...isnt that already enabled? i also didnt see anything for the ata133 pci card on maxtors site...did i miss somthing?

Shouldn't those be on a CD that came with the hard drive? Then again, if you got an OEM package, it won't come with a CD. Either way, that is kinda of a hidden deal there. I would think there would be a Windows Update that would fix that by now.

(BTW, does Windows XP Service Pack-2 automatically correct the problem? I have SP-2 Release Candidate 2. Pretty nifty really).
