    Hi everyone

    I've read all of the threads on here (and theres alot) regarding problems similar to mine but after following all the advice given on those threads still can't find a way to fix my own problem.

    I am operating Windows XP SP2 and the drives were both fully formatted when i installed the OS (The OS had SP2 already on so i didn't add it afterwards).

    I have a Asus P5B MOBO and both drives are connected via Ultra100 TX2 card via IDE

    The bios show both drives as being 200GB as it should and i have even updated my bios so it is the lastest revision.

    I've included a screen shot of my computer management and also of HDinfo showing that my drives are mean't to be 200GB. I have had this problem for ages and it's really starting to grate.

    Advice and solutions greatly appreciated

    Just to add a little bit more information to this, yesterday i added two 500GB HDD to my computer via sata and they are working fine at full capacity so that rules out the OS and the BIOS. I thought maybe it was the Ultra100 TX2 card but can't find any driver updates for it on the net.

    Still a bit stumped here

    I added the partition when i built the computer last year, the HDD originally came from a previous computer, C drive was fully formatted when i added the OS though.
