Then simply upgrade your Windows 2000 to the latest Service Pack. SP4 is the latest one for 2000, I think. If that doesn't support drives 132GB drives either, consider upgrading to Windows XP SP1 or higher. :)

I would personally not mind a 200 GB drive for storage, my 80 GB is starting to look mighty small if you catch my drift.

I have an IBM SATA 200 gig in my main PC, an External 200 Gig USB 2.0/Firewire drive and I just put a 200 gig IDE drive in my X-box. No problems with any of them so far.

I has got 600Gb of storage on server I built for work. :sneaky: RAID 0 SATA.




I am only using 100Gb of my 240Gb though. I suffered with a 40 for a couple of years, backing up older files to CD-R.

I'm about to upgrade to this hard drive. Hope it doesn't fill up as fast as my 120GB did. This will be my first SATA. Anything I should know about installation, guys?

just dont put your c: on it if you formate alot.. windows only sees 132 gigs i think and you have to do a few trhings diffrent that make it a bit longer in formating.

i love my 250..
Windows XP SP1 and higher recognizes larger drives (48-bit LBA) by default. Windows XP RTM has a registry trick that Microsoft talks about, but they also claim it isn't foolproof.

Yeah, be sure to have your raid drivers on floppies standing by. If you have a nice new MB then the installation should be.... "should" be easy. If you have a older SATA capable MB then it might take some more work. But just keep those drivers around... and if you cant figure out why windows wont detect it try creating a raid 0 array (with the SATA drive.. single drive) then it should work. Just letting you know in case that problem comes up. With my first SATA drive it took me close to 5 hours to figure that one out. :p

Anyway, I have dual WD 74GB 10k drives.... and its sweet. Totally worth the 400 bucks!!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
