    160 Gigabyte drive good for Gigastudio?

    I was wondering if I can run Gigastudio with samples streamed from a 160 Gig drive.
    So far I have been using only 120 Gig drives.
    Maybe someone has some experience to share.
    Thanks

    I have heard of some people having a hard time with them. So keep an eye out for some responses before investing right now.

    We use them all the time. No problems.

    Some systems BIOS\'s do not recognize more than 132 MB drive. You should with the motherboard manufacture. Most the newest boards from the past few months should handle them. Check the websites and get the latest BIOS.

    You can also use drive overlays (which I personally dislike) if the BIOS doesn\'t support 160 GB drives.

    Definitely check BIOS!
    If you connect your HD to IDE cannnel on an additional PCI card, check the capacity of the card, too.

    I, personaly, have not had any problem.

    That is the problem I was hearing about. Sounds like no problem if you get the right motherboard & settings

    No problems here. I\'ve TWO Maxtor 160G drives ... one for samples , one for audio (and an 80G for apps and personal data).

    No problems. Oly had to download a utility from Maxtor web site to allow windows XP to work with extra large discs.

    I\'m using a Western Digital 160 gig drive for my sample drive and it works great.

    Not to throw a wrench in the works, but...I\'m using a 250gb drive. My motherboard (with current BIOS) only reports it as a 135, but by setting the Windows registry for Large Bit Addressing I am able to use all 250gb. I don\'t understand why, but it works. I posted a question about this awhile back with little response. By the way, what are drive overlays?
