I have been doing some hardware upgrading on my PC. I have 2 new eBay special hard drives, a 15K, 73 gig SCSI and a 500 gig IDE. The SCSI is working like a song with enough room for all OS basics plus a little extra. I'm very happy.
However, PX will not recognize that the 500 gig even exists.
I've heard that XP was made to only handle up to 120 gigs, that anything above this and XP would need instructions on how to handle it, which usually is in the form of a CD that comes along with the hard drive.
Well my eBay special only included the brand new hard drive with no CD or anything else.
So, my question is where would I get this CD or download to adjust my XP to except the 500 gig and know what to do with it? That's it.
I'd really appreciate anyone that can help me with this. Thanks.
PS Oh, I also want to dispel the mystery that all SCSI's make a lot of noise. My 10K made one heck of a racket but my 15K is as quite as any IDE that I've ever had, I've only had one IDE running so far though.
