    Default 3TB WD only 746.36GB with N68-S3 UCC

    Hi all,

    Well I've googled about as much as I can trying to find a solution to this problem.

    I've got myself a 3TB WD Green to use with my mediapc running off an Asrock N68-S3 UCC motherboard. As the title suggests it will only ever show up in Disk Manager as 746.36GB.

    I've tried every solution I could find on the internet, excluding the Intel RST update as I believe the board uses nVidia instead?

    These solutions include:
    The 3TB ASRock unlocker has been installed
    Easeus Pegasus still shows it as 746.36GB
    I'm using the latest nVidia 280.26 drivers
    I have the ASRock nVidia all in one driver package 15.37 installed.
    The ASRock SataII Driver
    Windows 7 64bit SP1 installed with all the Windows Updates, up to date.
    Using P105 BIOS

    I emailed ASRock a few weeks ago but didn't get anything back.

    Is there something else I'm missing?? According to the Asrock 3TB unlocker page, I should be able to install that and it will work "easy"!!

    Any help much appreciated!

    sbertsch on the nVidia forums is the legend, has the solution to the problem. For anyone else looking, simply go to:

    - Control Panel
    - Device Manager
    - IDE ATA/ATAPI-Controller
    - Right-click on NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller
    - Properties
    - Make sure this is the one with your >2T drive. See connection 0 & 1 tabs.
    - Cancel
    - Right-click again on nForce SATA devices
    - Click on update driver software
    - Search for driver software on the computer
    - Select from a list of device drivers on the computer.
    - Select Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE controller
    - Next...
    - Reboot.

    And after that I now get 2.8GB available to use!

    Kudos to sbertsch
