Hi all,

I just installed a new 200G hd in an external case connected over
usb2 to winxp sp2 and only 128G can be seen. 

Tried same usb-box on my portable, and same thing happens there.
The portable also runs xp sp2.

I also tried looking for a possible bios-fix on both Aopens site
(the mobo is an AK79D-400VN) and Compaqs (the portable is an Evo
N610c) with no success.

Would anybody know if this 128G limit is inherent on the
usb2-hardware side or if it's windows?

The new hd is a Seagate Barracuda 7200.7, BTW.

Thx.



BW,

Sorin
