Question about Computers & Internet
I have 2 hard disk where I made 2 partition. One was FAT32 (20GB) and another was NTFS (320GB) Both of them are equipped with Windows XP. The problem is when I wish to print something using the NTFS drive, it takes about 5 minutes for printing to initiate which is so slow. But the problem doesn't occur if I use the FAT32 drive where I can print immediately. I have identified that it's not lack of disk space. Can anyone PLEASE give me the solution?
What drivers are you using on each partition - what version of xp is on each partition and if you restart the print spooler on both of them does that help ?
Also why have you got 2 installations of xp on one computer using 2 filing systems ?

Tips for a great answer:
Right-click on "My Computer"
Double-click "Disk Management"
You will probably see Disk 0 and Disk 1 for your primary hard drive.
Go to lower right portion of box and scroll down until you see Disk 2. It is probably your USB drive without a letter. It should show the size of the drive.
Right-click in the left portion of that drive box (Disk 2)
Click "Initialize" and "OK" in the next dialog box. This takes just a few seconds and it should now say "Online" in the "Disk 2" box.
Right-click in the box to the right side of the "Disk 2" box (where it shows your disk drive size and says "Unallocated".
Click "New Partition" and a "New Partition Wizard" will open up.
Click "Next", then select "Primary Partition" and click "Next".
Verify partition size (use entire disk size available unless you are creating multiple drives) and Click "Next".
Assign drive letter ("F" is typical if CD-Rom is E) and click "Next".
Format this partition with "NTFS", "Default", "New Volume" and click "Next".
Then click "Finish" to exit the wizard and start formatting.
Be patient... this can take awhile (it took just over an hour for a 320GB drive).
When done, you should see an icon for your drive in Windows Explorer!
hope this helps
