500gb hard drive taken from ps3 and put into pc showing up as 300gb after reformat

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
ok so i got a ps4 and didnt want to leave a perfectly good 500gb hard drive wasting away in my old ps3. so i hooked it up to my computer however in the bios it only shows up as around 300gb. i looked in disk management and it only shows the 300ish gb to format and no partitions. i tried formatting anyway, however it still only shows around 300gb. anyone have any idea how to get the rest of the drive space back?

Run HDAT2 and see if there is an arbitrary free space limit (aka Device Configuration Overlay). Many drives are essentially limited in size for the older consoles to work properly.
