External HDD and partitions.

Post by alscott »

I am using my 604 wifi with the DVR station to connect a self powered 1 TB HDD which is split into four partitions. I use one of the partitons for my archos which is formatted as FAT32 which I store films on, but it is now full. So I formatted another partition in FAT32 of the same size. My problem is that when I plug the HDD into the archos now it can only see the original partition I was using and I cannot acces the newly formatted partition.
Can the archos only see one partition, or am I doing something wrong?.
Any help would be much appreciated.

ok I have sorted this now, did some reading on the 604/504 forum and it appears that the 604 archos used with the DVR can only see one partition, must be the same for the 604 wifi. So I just made the existing partition bigger from 250 to 500GB and the archos can now see this.
