: I have problem with Kobian Kob 693 DCS mb that it can't detect 40 GB HDD. I think new BIOS update is required. I tryed Kobian website but link with this bios update is not working.

: If any one can send me link for bios update or the same , it will help ful to me


If you cannot find a BIOS update for your mainboard then you CAN get large HDD support by installing an ATA/66 expansion card. It will support HDDs up to about 128GB. An ATA/100 card will work also but the cost is about double and you are not likely to perceive any performance difference. Reason: Your HDD Sustained Data Transfer Rate is a lot less that 66MB/sec; the HDD, NOT the interface, is the limiting factor. ATA/66 card is the easiest, surest, least risky way to get large HDD support. BIOS update, if you can find it, is risky - very easy to misflash the BIOS.

Good Luck,
Henry
