Can my motherboard support HDDs over 400 GB

Can my motherboard support HDDs over 400 GB? My motherboard model is EM61SM/EM61PM.

Does anyone with my motherboard have any HDD limitations?

That board is supposedly a Foxconn MCP61SM-AM; rebranded by Acer. I am currently trying to dig up more info.

Above is a link to a guy claiming to have your board and "1 terabyte" of storage, but we don't know if that is all on one drive and if it is reliable info.

I found this page

Destructoid - The-Excel's Community Blog

He has one drive with 500 GB space, although I don't know if it's an internal or external HDD. At least it narrows down the search a bit?

Nevermind, it's an external.

If you have a 160GB hard drive at the moment, and can use all of it, that means that your motherboard supports LBA48 addressing (> 137GB).

I believe that means that any current HD should work, including the largest (2TB).

It only shows 139 GB to actually be usable.

Above is a link to the Foxconn board manual. I looked through it and saw no overt references to HD supported size. The board uses an NVidia chipset.

I have an Acer AST180.
I got it in 2007 from the Circut City deal for $170...when taking the monitor back.
Ive put XP on it.
Ive put another 1tb harddrive in it and altogther 4 gigs of ram. it works great, but could use a new fan on the back of case.
