I am having problems getting my XP system to correctly format a Samsung 200GB IDE Hard Drive.

The bios will report 200Gb if it is the only drive & set to master, if I install as a slave to my 160GB Samsung the bios only sees it at a 32GB drive.

I have just partioned & formated it (NTFS) using Windows XP setup but as soon as I connect it as a slave XP only sees it as 31.4GB :confused:

Anyone got an ideas?

Thanks

Nige.

This shouldn't be a problem so long as you have SP1 installed and above. Seems odd... is your Windows up-to-date?
