Question about Hard Drives
Hi, I have an INOi MH-720 wich I have used for a few months. I had the unit previosuly on the FAT32 system and decided to convert it to NTFS. Since I had big files on the disk I used the "convert h: /FS:NTFS" command on the cmd on windows xp. The conversion process was succesfull and it has no problem when connecting to any pc. But now everytime I attempt to connect my media drive to use the av playback function it starts but gives me a no disk screen and stays like that.
The drive is running on basic disk type and just has the primary partition
so my questions are:
- is there a solution to this issue?
- is there a solution to this issue that doesnt require a full format of my drive?
thanks in advance
Tips for a great answer:
First of all delete the partition that you wish to convert. This
is done by going into Disk Management: right click on My Computer > Manage > Disk Management, which is found under the
Storage section. Right click the partition you wish to remove, and click Delete
Volume This will erase the partition. Once you have done this, you must
re-create the partition. This is done by right clicking on an unallocated region
of a disk, and selecting Create Partition. Then click Create Logical Drive.
Bear in mind that Windows cannot format a FAT32 partition that is any larger
than 32GB. This is the case because FAT32 is terribly inefficient on volumes
that are larger than 32GB: fragmentation becomes a serious problem.
Or you can use partition magic software to convert it.
