Looking for which formatt is better for my needs’


Well, this is the Live/Plus forum, so unless you’re playing from that device it’s not *really* the right place to ask.

But in general you format NTFS if you expect to have files larger than 4GB (FAT32 won’t work with files that size or larger).  Since that’s pretty likely for HD movies NTFS is what you should use.


just wanted to confirm  …
