i thought it would only play ntfs hard drives
im new to all this any help would be very helpful
also is there any other way i can transfer the files thanks kirriejim
You don't need to buy a specific formatted drive and if you try may end up with some special.
By the way, have you seen the price of hard drives now since the floods in Thailand? They have gone through the roof.
It's probably easier to get say a 8 or 16GB USB flash drive just for transferring from your Humax to PC.
I have a couple of 8GBs for my PVR (not Humax) and general use.
8GB is just a touch too small though. I'll get mebbe 3 x SD movies on that. Takes ages anyway.
15 mins per hour for me.
Or if you have an existing external drive, just shrink the first partition and add a new first partition of a few GB, simply for getting the files off the Humax. You can then move the files anywhere on your system.
