Hello all, First time poster here....thanks for the great site. Quick question: I purchased a new Maxtor ATA/133 40gb hard drive for my G4 desktop. Got everything installed without any problems (thanks to Apple's brilliant case engineering). However once installed, prior to any formatting, the drive only "shows" 31.5gb. Now I realize that there is some sort of discrepency between the way hard drive manufacturers "market" their drives and what is reality (i.e. differing ways of counting bytes etc....I'm not much for the math thing). However, isn't the loss of 9gb a bit extreme? Keep in mind this was prior to initializing the drive that it showed the 31.5gb (never would recognize 40gb). Everything functions well...partitions etc, but does Maxtor owe me 9gb? Or, are we dealing with some operator malfunctions (i.e. am I an idiot)? Not such a quick question afterall....Thanks to all in advance.
