I have a compaq presario pc with a 60 gb hard drive some time ago i tried to install an 80 gb hard drive and after several experts had an input I finally discovered that the Compaq PCs will not recognise a larger hard drive than the factory installed drive. I now want to purchase an external hard drive, will I have the same problem? does anyone have any advice on what model of drive i shuold purchase. I mainly want to use the drive for video editing
