I bought a new 1TB Seagate drive a few days back.
Yesterday I installed it in my new PC and proceeded to try and install Win7. Then I get to the disk selection screen and it tells me that my 1TB drive is only 31MB in size.

So I restart the PC and enter the BIOS where it also shows me that the drive is 31MB.

I then put the new drive in my other PC and boot into windows, to try and format the drive this way to maybe fix it. But alas it also only showed up in the Disk Manager as 31MB total size.

Is there some way to fix this? I already own a Seagate 1TB drive that I bought about a year back, and that didn't give me any problems.

You have done the normal things that a user would do. Time to RMA it.

I was hoping for a fix or something, don't want to waste the time it takes for an RMA. I was hoping someone else has also encountered the same problem and was able to find a fix for it.
