    Problem With Hard Drive

    I have a D-link Roq-IT Mp3 player which uses a notebook hard disk to store files. It came with a 10GB drive but I recently got a 30GB drive and have been having trouble with it. The drive was originally in a PC so was in the NTFS format. I formatted the drive in windows to Fat32 and put all the mp3's and files on. It worked fine for a day but when I switch it on now the player says "Partition Error. Cannot find FAT16 or FAT32 partition. Please check drive." I have NO idea what this means. I'm not sure if the drive is possibly bad, because it stopped working in my friends PC. It still works intermittently but will at some point give me that error when I turn it on.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks. :bigthumb:

    It might not support 30 gigs. Hold on I can check. Assuming that the hard drive is new and it works (you haven't droped it and whatnot).

    I would like a gmail invite if you can spare one. thanks :) I'll try to solve this though.

    That's my guess. The firmware on the player can probably only support up to a certain size of drive.
