I have a Freecom network attached storage 160gb hardrive attached to my router that can be accessed from any pc on my home network. I want to access it from a pocket pc, but to do that it needs to be formatted in fat rather than ntfs.
Will there be a problem seeing all of the 160gb disk from xp or windows 2000 if I reformat it in fat32 using the computer management - disk management tool?
You must have XP SP2 installed to see above 127G on a FAT32 HDD or ammend the registry Shows 127G not 160G or Higher In Windows, click on Start->Run, enter "regedit". # Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Parameters registry subkey. # From the Edit menu, select New, DWORD Value. # Enter the name EnableBigLba, then press Enter. # Double-click the new value, set it to 1, then click OK. # Close the registry editor. # Restart the machine for the change to take effect.
