DL320 hard drive > 160GB - aka LBA48

Is there any plan to add LBA48 support to the DL320 with, perhaps, a bios upgrade? I just bought three DL320s and 6 Maxtor 250gb hds and was quite annoyed when it came up with only 131gb each... :-(

Thanks in advance!

annoyed? You know that most PC's, that are not new, do not support the new LBA and have to run a disk tool to access the extra space, and then there is Windows support.

As with everyone else, your best solution is to buy a new, good quality, IDE controller. Adaptec makes a good one. That will add a bit more speed and give you full support, for not much $$$
