hi there, PARTITION QUESTION for any experts, i was trying to do this

Where you use a USB2 HD instead of the official one, but my hard drives are all formatted in NTFS and I need FAT32 to make it work. I was wondering if there was any way to add an extra FAT32 partition in a pre formatted NTFS drive without reformatting the whole lot. Will i need Partition magic or something like that, or can it be done through Windows?

ta very much

It depends on whether or not the NTFS partitions take up the entire disk. If they do, you will need a tool (Partition Magic, gparted livecd, etc.)

If not, you can use windows create a FAT32 partition with the remaining space (up to 32 GB)
