How can I see the contents of a .bin or .rom file ? How can I edit these kind of files ? What am I supposed to know to do this kind of thing ? Can a 256 Kb .bin file be flashed in a bios whose original size is 128 kb ? What features can be added with a flash other than the 32GB HDD limitation ? Can ...

Win2k was not able to use the full capacity of the hard disk, i.e. about 38GB. Win2k only showed about 31.5GB. The boot partition is in C drive. It is not a multi-boot system. Do you mean anything else by full capacity?

I have tried the dynamic drive overlay software by samsung. I am now able to access about 37.25GB of my actual HDD space in Win2k.
THANKS gb.

gb said "I have set the jumpers to 32". What do you mean by that?

Nick, what kind of problems can a DDO program cause?

If I had an updated BIOS available from Totem, I would definitely flash(after taking the necessary precautions), but the latest which I found from their website had a BIOS date of 31/8/1998, which didn't solve my problem. I know that a DDO program is not the best solution but its better than having ...

So Nick, you are saying that you solved your BIOS problem WITHOUT flashing your BIOS by using a "dynamic drive overlay" program or a Disk Manager type program. My BIOS has only the 32GB limit, the 8.4GB limit problem was NEVER there. Will the utility, mentioned here "http://www.samsungindia.com/what...
