just a little question for a tekkie

i hope this isnt a daft question. here goes
i have purchased a samsung ht - c350/xeu cinema surround sound system ( before people rubbish it, it was ideal for my £100 pound budget ) in the book it says it will support a portable hdd via the usb upto 160gb, the question is if i buy a 500 gb and partition it to say 4 partitions of 125gb each would it recognise and treat each partition as a seperate drive.
thanks in advance

How would you get it to recognise each partition and swap between them? It wouldnt work.

it might like it even less if it's partitioned.

use fat 32 and format it as one partition to starty with then try your idea with http://tokiwa.qee.jp/EN/Fat32Formatter/ or http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm

thanks guys

dontasciime my manual says
Removable HDD
- Removable HDDs equipped with less than 160
Gbytes are supported. Removable HDDs
equipped with 160Gbytes or more may not be
recognized, depending on the device.

so i might take a chance and buy a bigger hdd and return it back if it doesn't recognize it and just plump for an old 160gb hdd its a case of suck it and see but i wont mess around doing partitions

thanks to you all
