: : my computer won't detedt my new 40gb hardrive it just sits there with the "detecting primary master drive" but never detects it. and i'm pretty sure i have connected everything properly. i even have anti static wrist bands. please help me!!!
: It appears that your mainboard BIOS does not support large HDDs (supports HDDs 40GB. The quickest, surest, safest method that will work is to get an ATA/66 expansion card (you need one PCI slot for it) that recognizes HDDs up to 128GB.

: If no PCI Slot you can get HDD support up to 32GB with an ISA IDE card made by DTC.

: Good Luck,

I had the same problem.
I used two jumpers to resolve this
(more or less) - The first its for
identify Master or Slave HD and the
second is to A/C HD (just put this on the
last block) - the motherboard recognize
the HD but only with 32GB.
I try other methods now (if you discover any please email me) - like installing WinXP and
formating HD with NTFS format.
