I have an older computer with a 200GB WD drive, WD2000JS. As you can no doubt tell from the model number, it is an older drive. It came in a HP/Compaq computer with Windows XP.
I’m having trouble installing a new OS on it and I noticed this discrepancy:
|Formatted Capacity 1||200,049MB|
|Used Sectors Per Drive||390,721,968|
|Interface||3.0 Gb/s Serial ATA 2.0 (backwards compatible with Serial ATA 1.0)|
|Bytes Per Sector||512 <---------------|
|Dedicated Landing Zone||Yes|
|Actuator Latch/Auto Park||Yes|
Details in my BIOS:
Landing Zone 65534
Sector 255 <-----------
Can the difference in Sector size affect my drive? Or is it just my machine uses sectors 1/2 the size and twice as many?
