Re: Segment Loss

Hello Ulrich,

Using disks larger than 137 GB on W2k and older XP (before SP1)
requires a registry setting and "mainboard compatibility"

see www.48bitlba.com

Without this you might be able to use the drive but will encounter
complete corruption if you try to access beyond the 137 Gb "barrier"

Good luck,
Arne van Belle

Only the 250 GB disk refuses to
cooperate, probably due to the FAT32 format under win2k.
Yaddahyaddahyaddah, I know. But I will have to salvage the data that
are still on it from its previous life before reformatting.
