Recently purchased a 160gb hd in a USB 2.0 case. In Xp and Linux drive shows up as 39gb. Any idea what happened to drive or was I hosed by the vendor-data shows it as a Seagate st316002?

Thanks

I have seen this type of thing before. I don't think that the controller in the case tends to report the disk correctly. What I did to get around the problem was to partition the disk in the machine, then put it in the external case, but I got the disk and the case separately.

The model number does not seem to be complete, but it seems to be listed as a 160Gb disk from the seagate web page.
