If its an external drive go to my computer, right click on the drive and click format. In the format box you should be able to choose which file system to use. Note: This will erase ALL data on the drive. This works with any secondary drive. For the primary drive you would have to reinstall windows, formatting in the XP setup process to change the file system type.

Why does Fdisk assign FAT32 file system to the Drrive after partitioning it to extended logical drive?


Fdisk creates, deletes or change a partition on a hard disk and then you need to Format the hard disk so it can be used to store data.
Fat32 is a format file system and it is used when you want to read and write data between a PC and MAC computer.
If you only want to use the hard drive on a PC and using windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 the format the hard drive using NTFS not FAT32.

What format should I chose to grab it to a PC?


This will depend on which type of computer and operating system you have
if you are referring to formatting your hard drive to a specific format file system NTFS or FAT choose the Ntsf file system is more secure Ntfs is more powerful than Fat or Fat32 and includes features required for hosting Directory as well as other important security features . You can use features such as Active Directory and Domain - based security only by choosing Ntfs your file system Its easy to convert Partitions to Ntfs . The set up programs conversion makes it easy whether your partitions used Fat or 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.

hope this helps you

Sorry but you wont be able to put a file larger than 4gb due to file format limitation since you used fat32. only NTFS supports files larger than 4gb. if you want to use it with large files you need to format again using NTFS. hope that helps!

Is alpine going to upgrade the usb formay from fat32 to ntsf for playing memory sticks in unit or how do you format music to fat32 on a windows xp ntsf format without wiping out hard drive


The Alpine CDE-103BT requires only USB media that is FAT12/16/32. You can format your USB medium on your PC to FAT32 then copy your media (music) to the the USB drive.
Insert your USB Drive to the PC On your PC navigate to Start ->MY Computer Then locate your the drive that is your USB Drive. At this time you will want to save any of your data before continuing. All Data on the USB drive will be lost. Next ensure that you have selected the correct drive. Right Click on the drive on go to format... Under File System select FAT32. I would suggest leaving Quick Format unchecked. So you ensure that will information is removed. Then Click start. Next copy your media (music) back to the USB Drive. Insert in to the CDE-103BT Stereo.
Notes: MP3/WMA/AAC files are prepared, then stored to a USB memory. This unit can recognize at least 100 folders (including root folder) and 100 files per folder stored in USB memory. Do not make a file's playback time more than 1 hour.

HI, I understand what is your issue. The problem i see is after the upgrade, all .pdf files got corrupted. What I could advise you to do is to revise all the modules you created to a newer version of .pdf. then reformat all the memory stick and convert it to NTFS files. Yes, Windows 7 can still recognize the FAT / Fat32 versions but there isolated cases of file corruption associated with WIndows 7. Hope this helps your concern.

Fat32 is yesterdays file system and is mostly used for small partitions and flash drives. Always format new hard drives in NTFS. The hard drives for the most part don't care what backup utility you use.
