Spoiler and i havent restored it yet, my motherboard: GA-MA-770T-ES3, my friend also use gigabyte mb but i forgot the serial More about : wd10ears capacity detected 0mb bios | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove COLGeek November 19, 2010 4:17:26 PM Did you try a different SATA port and/or cable? | Report abuse MrLinux November 19, 2010 5:34:48 PM Check if a BIOS update is available. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>WD10EARS capacity detected as 0mb in BIOS> Related ressources: ForumWD WD10EARS reading only 0mb in bios !
