It sounds like you have the old 48 bit LBA problem. Basically, for a computer to recognise a drive larger than 127GB, both the bios and the OS have to support 48 bit LBA translation. I'm assuming is your case, the bios does (however, if you've currently got the drive attached to a different computer, then you may want to check that the bios is recognising the full size). If the bios is fine, then the problem is with XP. Which service pack do you have installed?

Thanks for the thought starter!
