    You tried.. that's all the matters. :)

    If you have a look on the back of the drive, there should be a jumper setting to set the drive to 32GB, or a 32GB clip (different names on different drives). If you want to use part of the drive safely now, until you get an IDE controller, then set the jumper that way.

    I'm not even sure that a IDE controller will pick up the extra size, but it's worth a shot I guess.

    mostly all of the HD manufacturers have that Disk Manager you are talking about on their websites. it enables you to have support for disks larger than 32GB and yes...they do work :)
    here is the link for my new HD
    http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...98702&pfp=cat3

    "DiamondMax 120GB, 7200RPM, Internal E-IDE Hard Drive"

    i think the way you said is going to work, coz they do provide a CD which comes with the HD
    thanks !:cheers:

    have you run fdisk and format on it?
    in the BIOS i did open it ,and it only shows 33G, and also i upgrade the BIOS to the lastest one,

    havent format the disk yet, coz i think i did some wrong to the jumper coz in BIOS it shows i have both HD in primary !!!

    thanks for you advices:thumb:

    um $50 for a controller? wouldn't a whole new mobo (for that or a few dollars more maybe) be a better idea?
