It doesn't actually have 200GB of accessible storage. Click here and see the note at the bottom of the page.

Hello, thanks for the reply.
I really did not think this would be a problem on the G4 mirror doors, I know that quicksilver had this issue. I guess there is an ATA expander software or something, but I did not want to buy a PCI controller, I guess I am going to look into getting one.
Thanks for the tip.

This isn't the issue which would be resolved by getting another PCI controller; if it was, the maximum available storage on the drive would be 128GB/137GB, not 186GB.

As stated, there is no capacity issue with the MDD. It is all just a nomenclature issue, as well as the fact that once a drive is formatted, several GB are "lost" in the formatting process.
186 GB of the "200" GB is perfectly normal. If you put the drive on a PCI controller, it will be exactly the same.
