Basically, the USB chip won't go beyond 137Gb, even though Rockbox itself will
(I think the information on that page is possibly a bit out of date, and
Rockbox now does support >137Gb as standard).

You'll have to create two partitions as described, to see one of them over the
USB bridge.



The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was formed in 1824.
The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children was not formed 
until 1884.
That says something about the British.
