Format USB drives in FAT32 in Windows
« on: January 20, 2012, 03:14:33 PM »
Formatting your USB hard drives in FAT32 is ideal for use with PVRs, Smart TVs and Computers (including Windows, Mac and Linux) as it can be read and written to by all of them.  The only real downside is that FAT32 can only support file sizes up to 4GB, so large movies recorded on HD channels may need splitting in to 2 or 3 parts.

If you are a Windows user you may have discovered that Windows will not let you format a drive larger than 32GB as FAT32. So I'd suggest formatting the HDD using Ridgecrop's free app called guiformat. Then both Windows and the Humax will be able to use it without any further issues.

To download guiformat click on the following link then click on the picture of the application (NOT the google add below it)
