    Thank you, Mars, My Windows 10 computer formats them as NTFS. I thought this was standard? I thought FAT32 was the old standard?

    That is true for Windows, but not for Android. There are apps that claim to allow Android devices to use NTFS, which you should be able to find by searching for 'NTFS' in Get More Apps (I have never tried any such app), or just use FAT32.

    NTFS is a microsoft licenced File System . It has a maximum filesize of 1 byte less than 4MB. The same issue affect X Box users
    Windows can only format relatively small partitions.
    Easiest way to format a large FAT 32 disk is

    If this was true then no one using Windows 10 would be able to use a file larger than 4GB! FAT32 has a maximum file size of 4GB, but the maximum file size for NTFS is larger than the size of any existing HDD.

    I know but HD bitrates and the latest H264/AVC encoders and stat muxing mean that even the longest movies will be smaller than this. Average bitrates on say BBC1-HD are less than the best SD channels of a few years ago.
    Even a HD transmission of Gone With The Wind will fit. AFAiK the longest movie so far produced.
    USB 3.0 is way faster than anything required for UHD streaming with even Disney+ with atmos.
    Anyone who thinks a SSD will help is deluded. It will reduce noise and power consumption a little but otherwise have no effect. A standard low speed sata drive has More than enough speed to deliver flawless recording for any multituner box (including 4K) .
    The processor uses interrupts to process things like USB transfers to ensure that the main pvr capabilities like recording and playback are flawless while processing USB functions. Stealing clock cycles when the cpu allows.
    As it happens the G2 boxes can use NTFS drives.

    When you quote the post of someone else you should not edit it (i.e. changing 4MB in my post to 4GB). I was responding to your post that claimed that the maximum file size with NTFS was 4MB whereas it is 8 petabytes so you were only out by a factor of 2 billion.

    Misread was attempting to change Max File size of Fat 32 in my post.
