    Soyo SY-K7V DRAGON plus!

    Any hard drive that I put into IDE-1 is seen as much smaller that it
    actually is. I have 40 gig drives in the RAID ports configured in striping
    mode. These appear to work fine.

    When I put a WD 40 gig drive in IDE-1 it is seem as a 12 gig. When I put a
    10 gig drive it is seen as a 4 gig. If I put them into IDE-2 they are seen
    as they truly are.
    The 40 gig is a WD & the 10 gig is a Quantum.

    Anyone seen this before?

    I also tried to use this port for a CDROM but it was buggy, wouldn't work.

    Is this a bad port?

    Set to AUTO. =/

    Hard to believe it's toast. I used the port for a few months before I got
    the 2nd drive & created the RAID config.

    Going to try manual next.

    could be that the fdisk is set to so it is partioned and the other 28 gigs
    is in unactive partition. Maybe that helps
