View Full Version : CD Labels- 2 gig limit

6th November 2004, 09:18 PM

Ive been useing FC2 for about 2-3 month almost exlusivly. The only 2 real exeptions are when downloading files that over 2 gigs, making cd lables.

Im a big gamer and if the game does not run on linux then I no longer play it. (winex has been a big help :) MMORPG's only)

well anyhoo I would love to stop putting in my windows harddrive (could use it for /home or other i guess)

1. Is there a way around 2 gig limit. I going to try useing Freedos format on a 2nd hard drive but not sure if it is a safe way of doing this or even possible havent looked into it much yet. http://www.freedos.org/

2. Is there a what you see is what you get cd Lableing system out there. I used MediaFACE for years and have many many lable in *.mfp format and would like to keep useing them if not then I am not past starting from scratch but would prefer not to.

thank you for any info.

The 2GIG limit is the major disadvantage of FAT32 systems. As far as I know there's no way around it.

I have not had any problems with fat32 having a 2gig limit as far a I know it does not have a file size limit .

I was useing my fat32 hd to store my 2.x + gig files but was a pain to have to remove my linux hd and put in my windows hd then download my file to my storage drive then shutdown put in my linux hd and install what i need.(my hard drives are in removeable trays)

I do belive that the link that ilja provided will sovel my problem i will try it now

thank you for the help and replays

There are a couple CD label printing tools mentioned here (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?s=&threadid=214739). One of them, glabels is here (http://dag.wieers.com/packages/glabels/) I'm not sure if any can open that format, however.
