    USB Hard drive Partitionning

    Hello,

    I have 1TB on my hard disk.
    I'd like to have around a third for Philips TV recording and the rest for my own usage.

    I tried to split the disk with different configurations : ext2 or 3 for the first partition and ext2/3/NTFS/FAT32/unallocated for the second one.
    Each time, TV formats the whole disk.

    Is there a way to save my second partition?

    Regards,

    Marc

    Hi Marc

    I can confirm that what the TV does with formating the Hard disk is normal behavior, an you cannot have partitions.

    Hi Benedickte,

    What a pity that Philips didn't choose to keep other partitions.
    Maybe because of security constraints.

    Thanks Benedickte
