Using your same setup. U have to format to FAT32.
Do a search on the web for free FAT32 format program. It will unlock all 120GB

if i'm not wrong. digimate needs FAT32 hdd to run. however check respective models. older models does not support large volume HDD.

i am using digimate III with 100GB FAT32 formatted harddisk.

how to format FAT32? i used a traditional approach. i hook up my 100G harddisk to my pc, then attempt to install win98, during installation, it will format the hd... after formatting, off pc ... than place hd in digimate... than can use lor.

anybody knows how to format in win xp or vista?

under administrative tools > computer management > disk management you can do that... but i think its limited to 32GB, so gotta partition before formatting it.

There should be a utility program that comes with the casing. You need it to format the hdd with FAT32 and above 32 GB.

If you don't have it, try search the Internet for it.
