i have a samsung hard drive which has been posing some problems. it's a 80gb HDD, but only 37GB of the drive can be accessed. the rest of the space cannot be formatted or partitioned. if i try to format or partition the remaining space, the disk becomes unresponsive and goes offline, i.e., even the original 37GB is not available. only on a system restart does it show up again. how do i fix it?
another thing, the label on the HDD says that its only a 40GB HDD. but fdisk, windows disk manager and partition magic all recognise it as a 80GB HDD...
