Hi all, I have bought a new 300GB seagate 7200.9 pata harddisk, and tried to plug in to my 2-3 years old macpower icecube 3.5" combo harddisk enclosure… but in linux / windows xp, it can only be recognized as 137GB one (tested in 3 computers, intel and amd based, both firewire and usb).
Then I tried to use a usb-to-ide cable, the harddisk can be recognized correctly (about 280-290GB).
To test another enclosure, I tried my 5.25" one, which I placed my dvdrw in it. And at this point, the harddisk can be recognized correctly!! It uses the same oxford 911 chipset, but the “date” (actually I don’t know it is the date or not) printed on the chipset is different.
I tried to update firmware of the icecube to 3.7 / 3.8 / 4.0, all have no luck in recognizing correctly…
Does anyone have a solution to the above problem?
