    external drive in fat32 4gb limit

    NEW PURCHASE WONT POWER UP

    yes - upper folder appears to have no point or neccessary function except to confuse tidy minded who need to understand it all. (intuition is great if you've got it!) will move on to the joys of moving data between humax and pc via usb sticks. hoping i can get .ts files off my 9200t and onto...
