I just bought a SAMSUNG SV1203N but my BIOS thinks its 33gb. I flashed with the newest BIOS-update found on the chaintech site but it still won't detect more than 33gb.

Motherboard specs:
Chaintech 7AjA2/100, VIA KT133A + 686B,Award + ChipAway Virus,ATX,Audio CMI 8738, Socket-A

Check the HDD jumper settings. You should find a jumper which limits the drive to 33GB.
