    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!

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

Sounds like theres a partition hiding somewhere. You dont need any third party software to do what youre doing. Cli start button and in the run box type Disk Management ....in the window which opens you should see all the drives on the computer .... right click on your 1TB and choose delete partition and also any partition which is not allocated now right click again and choose ne partition. Hopefully after all this you have back your 1TB........cheers and please vote

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.

I`m unable to install windows 98 in seagate 80 gb ide barracuda hdd


For W98, if you create the bootdisk from within windows, you will need to go here to download the newest version of FDISK.EXE then copy it to the bootdisk, allowing it to overwrite the older version. This way you will have support for larger harddrives.

FDISK LIMITATION WITH 64GB DRIVES:
Why does FDISK not recognize my disk (or RAID array) which is larger than 64GB?

There is a bug in Microsoft's FDISK under Windows 95B, 98 and 98SE that can be corrected by downloading a newer version. See Knowledge Base Article Q263044 for more information.
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q263044

When you use Fdisk.exe to partition a hard disk that is larger than 64 GB (64 gigabytes, or 68,719,476,736 bytes) in size, Fdisk does not report the correct size of the hard disk.

The size that Fdisk reports is the full size of the hard disk minus 64 GB. For example, if the physical drive is 70.3 GB (75,484,122,112 bytes) in size, Fdisk reports the drive as being 6.3 GB (6,764,579,840 bytes) in size.

NOTE: This hotfix is not designed for 48-bit logical block addressing (LBA) hard disks, and it is not supported on hard disks larger than 137 GB. However, even if the drive is physically larger than 137 GB, if you create partitions smaller than 137 GB, this FDISK.EXE version will work correctly. (THE FORMAT COMMAND WILL SHOW THE DRIVE AMOUNT IN DOS TO BE OFF THE MARK, BUT WILL BE CORRECT WHEN YOU GET INTO WINDOWS ITSELF)

Direct English Version download:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/Win98/Update/8266R/W98/EN-US/263044USA8.EXE

This package installs the updated Fdisk.exe to the Windows\Command and Windows\Options\Cabs folders, on a computer running Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition. If you are starting a computer from a Windows 98 Startup Disk in order to partition and format the hard disk, you should copy the updated Fdisk.exe from the Windows\Command folder to the Startup Disk, replacing the original Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition version of Fdisk.exe on the Startup Disk.
