View Full Version : Format new HD in Ipod to fat32?

31st May 2006, 02:07 AM

I just replaced my HD in my 4g ipod.
It is not formated.

I do not have a win or mac box.

I use GTKpod anyway and it can write the DIR for the ipod. I just need to get the thing formatted in fat32.

When I plug it in it is listed.
Disk /dev/sda: 20.0 GB, 20000267776 bytes
64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 19073 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 = 1048576 bytes

Disk /dev/sda doesn't contain a valid partition table

Just wanted to know if I can format it from linux?
