Yeah, that doesn't make any sense, maybe some people have dual layer DVD burners? (Yeah Right, Maybe if you're Bill $ Gates). tongue.gif

But you do run into problems when you try to make an ISO between 4 - 4.7 Gb on FAT32. There's just a narrow band between FAT32 limitations and usefulness of the ISO file.

OK, To the orig question on how to convert the drive. If and only if you're running win 2000 or xp, click start, run. then type "cmd" and ok. It'll pop up the command prompt. there type "convert c: /fs:ntfs" that will convert the hd to ntfs file system.

For those using Windows 2000 in order to convert from a Fat32 FileSystem to NTFS do the following:


Open a command prompt window.
In the command prompt window, type

convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfs



i.e. convert C: /fs:ntfs
