    Format the player to NTFS and it should work fast.

    Please back up the DATA on the player before you format it.



    Go to “My Computer”, right click on the player and select the option “Format”.

    Make sure the option s “Quick Format” and file system “NTFS” are checked, and select “Format”



    Good Luck!

Past a show to a external hard drive


When the file is larger that 2Gbyte you run into a problem, when the external drive is formattet in FAT. Larger than 4 Gb the Apple format stops you. Only the NTFS format allows you to save larger files.
Or when you make a DVD code from the show, It will fit on any drive, becasue the largest file on a DVD is onlt 1 Gb

How do i put videos on my


chek if formating is in fat filesystem, fat 32 has a size limit for single files of 4 GB fat 16 limits it to 2 GB so if you are trying to put a dvd-rip of 4.5 GB there is your problem, anyways right click on the drive in my computer, click-properties, under general you will see what file system it is, to change you will need to format the drive, and be careful because formating deletes everything off targeted drive - to format right click on the drive and select format..., choose ntfs file system and quick format if you want (speeds up the process), (be sure you saved data on hdd beforehand) and hit format. if the issue is not file system related i rly don't know what else could it be

I am trying to format my FreeAgent GoFlex 500 GB to FAT32, but the only options available to me are NTFS, and exFAT. How do I format it to FAT32?


The problem is that Windows doesn't format anything larger than 32GB as FAT32. You need to use a specific tool to do so. Have a look at this website

320 GB Inoi media hard drive will not play on TV


Make sure you are using the original composite cable and check the connections.
If you are using a SCART cable check the connections.
Also make sure the remote control is responding to media player.
Check the drive responds when you press the “STANDBY” button on the remote.
If the drive responds then the remote is working fine. If not change the battery and see whether it helps.

Also try on another TV and see whether it works. If not back up all the data on the drive and format it and see whether it helps.

All the best!

Greetings.

files bigger than 4 gigs cannot be save on fat32 drives. NTFS file system is capable of saving files bigger than 4 gigs.

The MAC - to PC did nothing to change it. It did not change while she look it at her pc.

If u want to be able to copy files bigger than 4 gigs to your drive, change the format to ntfs.


  • It is easy to convert partitions to NTFS. The Setup program makes conversion easy, whether your partitions used FAT, FAT32, or the older version of NTFS. This kind of conversion keeps your files intact (unlike formatting a partition). If you do not need to keep your files intact and you have a FAT or FAT32 partition, it is recommended that you format the partition with NTFS rather than convert from FAT or FAT32. Formatting a partition erases all data on the partition and allows you to start with a clean drive. Whether a partition is formatted with NTFS or converted using the convert command, NTFS is the better choice of file system. For more information about Convert.exe, after completing Setup, click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER. In the command window, type help convert and then press ENTER.

You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps. Before you begin, note that the FAT32 file system has size limitations. In this version of Windows, you cannot create a FAT32 partition greater than 32 gigabytes (GB). In addition, you cannot store a file larger than 4 GB on a FAT32 partition. For more information, see Comparing NTFS and FAT file systems.
blank.gif Converting a hard disk partition or volume from NTFS to FAT32 requires that you reformat the partition, which will destroy any data on it. Be sure to back up any data you want to keep before you begin.
