First off i fairly new to installing brand new hd's. But i have formatted, partioned, and installed various OS's.... So i just got this Maxtor 7200 rpm 80gb internal hd today and installed it as a slave. Bios picked it up no problems. I am running XP and partioned to NTFS. It reads 74.5gb's. Should it read more then this? Anyways the device works perfectly as far as i can tell. I have put folders and files on this driver and things exe fine from it. Im just curious why in device manager it says the drivers arent installed for it. Also, everytime i reboot the hardware outdetect picks up the harddrive and says it cant install it properly.

All help is greatly appreciated
