Question

I have a drive that is larger than 137 GB but the operating system only recognizes 128 GB or 137 GB. How can I fix this?
...

I could paste the entire thing here, but there are links which won't come through.

What file system are you running? Fat32 or NTFS? I think (unless something changed that I don't know about) that Fat32 only supports up to 137gb... while NTFS goes up to 4 terabytes.

yup, and the 48bit LBA thingy is also something that may help!
