Subject: Re: ROCKBOX AND NTFS ???

Re: ROCKBOX AND NTFS ???

From: David Pedersen <dav-ped_at_frisurf.no>

    Good enough! Thing is that I am blind, and there is no way for me to
operate Linux. So,, I am looking for a Windows based solution, and my
computer has winxp installed on it.

Hey, you who had a 32MB partition: How did you manage? When I run the
DISKPART command from the dosprompt, the software automaticaaly sets the
whole disk as one big partition...

Is there no way, to have the jukebox play ntfs? Or make use of several
partitions on the disk?

David
