hi all,

i bought a new drive sata 160gb (seagate). but i found there is only
about 150gb after installed win xp. i put all the Motherboard driver
and download the latest service pack 2 and the seagate drive
utility(which modified the registry value--enable48bit lba) but still
the same.

any idea?

paul

Like this?

Advertised --- Actual Capacity
10GB --- 9.31 GB
20GB --- 18.63 GB
30GB --- 27.94 GB
40GB --- 37.25 GB
60GB --- 55.88 GB
80GB --- 74.51 GB
100GB --- 93.13 GB
120GB --- 111.76 GB
160GB --- 149.01 GB
180GB --- 167.64 GB
200GB --- 186.26 GB
250GB --- 232.83 GB

It's because we use wo different counting systems, decimal and binary
149GB ~ 149*1024*1024*1024 ~ 160GB (decimal as in 160*1000*1000*1000)
)

Thats normal, the drive sized is stated
by seagate in decimal GBs and XP reports
the size in binary GBs.
