    I know this is sacrilege but i have an urgent windows hardware question. i installed what is supposed to be a 320gb western digital hard drive. Here's a link if you need it.

    So it's detected, but it doesnt let me bypass the 137 gb limit. I have xp sp2 and there dont seem to be any drivers to be downloaded. i've heard things about having to buy a controller card. what do i do?
