When A Hard Disk Is Too Large

My year 2000 computer's 10 GB hard disk was nearly full, so I decided to add another hard disk. Bigger is better, right? Wrong.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

I tried to add a 40 GB hard disk, but the computer couldn't seem to recognize it. But when I added a 20 GB hard disk, it worked. It had something to do with the old computer's BIOS being unable to recognize hard disk capacities larger than 20 GB.

So the next time you're shopping around for an additional hard disk to put into your old computer, please make sure that it's not too large.
