Fujitsu MH2120 (120gb mobile drive) believes it is 40gb
Posted on 2007-03-17
I recently purchased a Fujitsu MH-2120 hard drive as an upgrade for my Dell e1505 laptop. I cloned my existing drive to the new drive using a USB-SATA drive adapter and Paragon's Personal Drive Backup program. The cloning went smoothly and after the clone I could see all of my data on the new 120gb drive. I then removed the 40GB drive in my computer and replaced it with the new drive. The BIOS did not recognize the drive as 120GB, but rather saw it as a 40GB. The drive was able to boot and function but thought it was a 40GB drive. I replaced the original drive and tried hooking it back up through the USB/SATA adapter. The drive now believed that it was 40GB--even when connected through the USB SATA adapter, rather than directly. I contacted Dell and they advised me to perform a A11 Bios flash followed by an A12 bios flash. I did this, but the Fujitsu MH2120 is now convinced it is a 40gb drive instead of a 120. Can anyone help?
