Subject: Re: Newb question about external HD's (non-aol) but still newb

I think there should be no problem for formatting through usb, just do
it as for any drive in windows.
maybe check the list for hd compatibility problems.
fat32 has a 32gb limit for size also? I dont know if you can use
multiple partitions../
I don't have such a big disk so I can't tell you...

>>Is it possible to program the archos to read from another external HD? I use my AJBRv2 for mostly home stereo stuff. I have over 700 cd's that I would love to rip and get rid of. Is this do-able? My stereo is in another room from my computer, so just patching them together just doesnt seem feasible.
