MY 80GB MAXTOR HARD DRIVE REALLY SUCKS BIG TIME!!!

I have an 80GB Maxtor Hard Drive I'm having problems with. The Maxblast software sees the full capacity of the drive and sets it up as it should when I connect it on the mother board. The problem arises after the computer is powered off. (NOT REBOOTED) After powering up, the bios only shows 33GB of the drive. Then the drive becomes unaccessable in Windows. I've also tried using an ATA adapter card but it only sees 33GB no matter what. I know it's not a bios limitation issue because I can run a 250GB Western Digital on either the Mother board or ATA Card without any issues at all. Might it be an internal physical issue that I can't fix?
