Your existing drive reports smaller or the new one?  Are you sure you have the drive jumped correctly?  Can you provide some details about your system?  Does your system support at least ATA66?  Make sure you do not have the drive jumped to limit capacity... some drives have this for backward compatibility with older systems.

I would recommend a partitioning tool like Partition Magic (if Symantic has not crippled it too much) or Vcom's Partition Commander to resize your partition with less risk.
