    You mean Hard Drive as in this is the [bold]wrong forum?[/bold]
    Did you bother to do a google search?
    I did and found this:
    Please Note: In order to properly access the full capacity of an ATA interface hard drive or partition larger than 137GB and properly support 48-bit logical block addressing, Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 are required. This issue does not affect SCSI hard drives.

    You must not be using winXP, because it has built in support for large drives with SP1. Like Cami said, with Win2k you need either SP4, or there are certain patches you can DL from Microsoft's website.
