    fat32 question

    ok here goes i only formatted 4gb for fat32 i did not think at the time should have made it much bigger but in the tut it said to use a small amount of fat32 just want more space for movies.

    i wanted to ask is there a way i can change this without formatting the whole hard drive as i have filled up my other partition with games i don't want to lose, just thought id ask before i go ahead and lose the everything

    thanks in advance

    If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, you can enlarge the partition with Windows' tools. If you use Windows XP, you need Partition Magic.

    Even easier would be to run diskmgmt.msc (Start\Run...). XP does have built-in disk management tools.

    tried to use partition magic got an error

    tried diskmgmt.msc this failed to connect to the remote computer because disk managment remoting service is not in the windows firewall exeception list

    what ever that mean's

    any more ideas

    also while im at it is there anyway of getting an ISO movie file on to the usb to watch thought this would save me posting new thread

    thanks

    Add an exception to dmremote.exe in the Windows Firewall.
