I have the Western Digital 200GB WD2000JBRTL UATA100 with an Ultra ATA Controller Card...hd plugged into controller card like it should be....
yet it still detects only the 137 GB's...i really don't know what's wrong. Help anybody:

Some other specs of my comp:
Windows XP service pack 1
Gigabyte GA-8IK110
Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG (is my bios not 48-bit or something?)

More about : 137 128 binary limit

Have you updated the BIOS of the IDE controller card to the latest one so 48-bit LBA is supported? If you can't find any update try installing the drive with a utility you can find at the Wester5n Digital website... maybe that can bypass the LBA limitation.

I love my Delta 60HP 7000 RPM fan that puts out more dB then CFM :eek:

or just partition the HDD into 2 or more, then it should run just fine...

Trust me I know what I'm doing... ooops, grab the cat...
