As tosh9iii mentioned, you need to enable LBA48 support to see the whole disk.
For WD disk, download DataLifeguard at http://support.wdc.com/download/index.asp

Is it an IDE drive connected to the motherboard controller?

What make & version is motherboard (or PC if you don't know that)?

If so it may be that the BIOS on the motherboard will need to be updated. Isuggest that you check the support wibsite for the motherboard to see if there are updates that address this issue.

It is probably the Windows LBA registry problem, fixed as described above.  A BIOS problem would more likely limit the drive to 32GB or 60GB.

It can be BIOS problem, too. There were updates for older motherboards to support 48bit LBA.
