I convert the file system of my sansa e250 to FAT32 and now it says release 6MB space even though no songs is there to play..not sure how to resolve it or revert back it now. -Rohit


Hook it up to your pc again via the usb cable and format it again, choosing NTFS file system. If you are running Windows XP you might only have option for FAT32. If you do reformat in FAT32 and it still doesn't work, you may need to download a drive management utility that can format a removalable drive in either NTFS or FAT32. If all else fails, you may need to download and install a flashing utility from the manufacturers website to revert the player back to factory condition.

FAT32 was the file type used for the early Windows operating systems. With the release of Windows NT and XP it switched to NTFS file system. FAT32 is still used however to transfer data between Mac and PC. The downside of FAT32 is the files read slower and file size cannot exceed 4GB. If you do not use a Mac I would suggest using the Disk Management utility in Control Panel under Computer Management to convert it to NTFS.

If you are running your computer under ntfs should your external harddrive be formatted the same instead of fats32. If it does can I move my back up from the external hard drive and move it back after...


The external hard drive can remain formatted as FAT32. NTFS and FAT32 are the file systems used by the individual disk drives, and do not effect the data being read or written (i.e., you can transfer data between the two with no worries about compatibility). There ARE differences, however, and many would suggest using NTFS to avoid some limitations with FAT32. For example, FAT32 drives have problems with individual files over 4GB. Formatting in NTFS is definitely recommended for people storing large files like video and other media files.
Yes, you can move any data you have off of your external hard drive (to your system hard drive or another external you use temporarily), format your external hard drive with NTFS, and then transfer your backups and other data back to your newly formatted external drive.
You can also convert the drive to NTFS; but I recommend backing up the data first anyway in case of (rare) problem during conversion. Here is a link that has directions for both scenarios (scroll down for conversion info) for Windows XP. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/tips/advanced/ntfs.mspx
The process to convert is similar for Vista and 7; here are the instructions from MS: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Convert-a-hard-disk-or-partition-to-NTFS-format

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.
