: : Fdisk and FAT 32 have an upper limit of that size if its a primary partition, partition your drive into at least 2 and make sure the boundry is under 32Gb for the primary.

: I don't think this is a FAT 32/ Fdisk limit.
: I recently fdisked and formated an 80gb HD into a single primary partition.

: 1. The FDisk that comes with win98se is limited to ~ 64GB. Microsoft has an update.
: 2. you may be able to get around the 32gb limit with one of the HD manufacturers utilities such as EZ drive. go to their websites. you came easily download from there.

: 3. Check to make sure that your jumpers are correct. Some large drives offer a 32 gig option on the jumper panel. My IBM UDMA 40gig is one of these.
