Hi all ! I have 2 questions about upgradding for a bigger hd:

How does rockbox (and the original firmware) handle multiple fat32
partitions ?
I know rockbox can see them but so far I've never heard someone using
multiple partitions

WinXP limit fat32 to 35 gigs, tool like partition magic remove this limit,
but up to what size of partition ? What about the clusters size and
Rockbox/Archos ?
</newbee> :)

Sorry if it is in the mail archive, I cant access the internet for the
moment, only mails... and I'm currious !

Thank you !

Take the slowest and biggest drive available. It will make absolutely no
sense to take a 5400 or even a 7200 rpm drive. Costs more money, shortens
battery life and increases noise without any real advantage on the other
