    Ok, The problem is that your computer is using the Fat32 file system which does not support files that are larger than 4GB. Aparently, there are files larger than that on your PS2 games. The only way I know to fix it is to use the NTFS file system that supports files larger than 4GB. But that's a NT system, so you'll need to use Windows 2000 or Windows XP, which also means reformating your hard drive and starting over.......BUMMER!

    I had this problem last night and found this page

    http://aumha.org/win5/a/ntfscvt.php

    The problem was that I had upgraded my win98 to XP but that doesn't change the file system from FAT32 to NTFS... this page tells you what to do step by step

    Hope this helped

    Iffin you don't wish to spend the $$$$ and just get the job done -

    FAT32 to NTFS, It’s the right move - It’s upgrading -

    Ya have FAT32 and the 4 Gig ceiling is killing you right ? You really want to backup your DVD's but your filing system is putting the "Kabash" on you so far -

    Someone has told you, you must change something in OR on your HD and it’s causing you to sweat bullets. It sounds MAJOR. It’s not -

    You haven’t made a backup of your HD for a Long, long, really long time and you’re worried that messing with your HD could ruin the world as you know it. - Well one of theses days you really need to backup your PC but for this operation, you’ll be able to squeek by. Ya know, ya really do need to do that backup thingie (lol), but you've never had the time to do it. I understand, really I do and guess what there Alfie, you don't really have to do it now. I haven’t heard of anyone's PC experiencing an atomic melt down, killing their owner with radioactive poisoning or losing even a single file when upgrading FAT32 to NTFS. It’s the right move -

    No worries mate, you’re just a little bit behind the times is all -

    No trouble converting your HD from FAT32 to NTFS, it’s safe and fast.

    Hey, take a second and learn something about it -

    This is a good place to start, it compares both file systems and their performance -

    http://www.ntfs.com/ntfs_vs_fat.htm

    (Be sure to check the comparison of the 2 at the bottom of the page) -

    Ok, feel better ? You’re about to be brought into the light -

    This program is called Partition Magic 8 is simple and easy and best of all - you download the trial version so it costs you Nada, Zip, Zilch as in free. (It’s a good thing, right ? Yep, you bet.)

    http://www.soft32.com/download_151.html

    Option 2.

    If you have XP, then you can go to to go to "Run" on the start menu, type in "command" and then in the new window type in "convert k: /fs:ntfs". Don't type in the quote marks. This is if your drive letter is "K". You must have Windows XP to do this. The earlier Windows versions can't read an NTFS drive. When you convert this way you will have 512 byte cluster size. If you check free space before and after, you should see a difference. I converted a 60GB drive that was about 2/3 full and picked up about 2GB more free space.

    Ya feel better working in the Command window - No worries either, Check Herbsman (a MOD) away back when he was just a member, he will give you the “Skinny” right here -

    http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/81003

    OK, you should be set.

    Any questions, stop back and we’ll try to help :p)

    Cheers,

    Pete

    Is there a way to reset NTFS back to the default (FAT32) mode?

    < I'm a newbie to most of this too :)

    There is a way to convert a Fat or Fat32 Volume (Drive) to NTFS without formating the drive and re-installing everything: (This can be found in Win XP Help)


    CONVERT

    Converts FAT and FAT32 volumes to NTFS.

    Syntax
    convert [volume] /fs:ntfs [/v] [/cvtarea:FileName] [/nosecurity] [/x]

    Parameters
    volume
    Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon), mount point, or volume name to convert to NTFS.
    /fs:ntfs
    Required. Converts the volume to NTFS.
    /v
    Specifies verbose mode, that is, all messages will be displayed during conversion.
    /cvtarea:FileName
    For advanced users only. Specifies that the Master File Table (MFT) and other NTFS metadata files are written to an existing, contiguous placeholder file. This file must be in the root directory of the file system to be converted. Use of the /CVTAREA parameter can result in a less fragmented file system after conversion. For best results, the size of this file should be 1 KB multiplied by the number of files and directories in the file system, however, the convert utility accepts files of any size.
    For more information about using the /cvtarea parameter, see "File Systems" at the Microsoft Windows XP Resource Kits Web site.(http://www.microsoft.com/)

    Important

    You must create the placeholder file using the fsutil file createnew command prior to running convert. Convert does not create this file for you. Convert overwrites this file with NTFS metadata. After conversion, any unused space in this file is freed. For more information about the fsutil file command, see Related Topics.
    /nosecurity
    Specifies that the converted files and directory security settings are accessible by everyone.
    /x
    Dismounts the volume, if necessary, before it is converted. Any open handles to the volume will no longer be valid.
    Remarks
    You must specify that the drive should be converted when the computer is restarted. Otherwise, you cannot convert the current drive.
    If convert cannot lock the drive (for example, the system volume or the current drive), it offers to convert the drive the next time the computer restarts.
    The location of the MFT is different on volumes that have been converted from previous version of NTFS, so volume performance might not be as good on volumes converted from Windows NT.
    Volumes converted from FAT to NTFS lack some performance benefits compared to volumes initially formatted with NTFS. On converted volumes, the MFT might become fragmented. In addition, on converted boot volumes, NTFS permissions are not applied after the volume is converted.
    Examples
    To convert the volume on drive E to NTFS and display all messages, type:

    convert e: /fs:ntfs /v

    I hope this helps.

    Yo blunts.... if ur saying ur C drive is already NTFS then you can copy ur ps2 games to that drive... ur original post said that dvd decrypt was reporting ur D drive was fat32 so the solution is dont copy ur dvd's to the D but to the C.

    Hi MESHUGGAN,

    I'm not sure I understood you -

    Why would you wish to go from NTFS to FAT32 ?

    That's like saying you have a 2005 car and want to park it and use a horse from now on . . .

    NTFS makes far better use of your HD than FAT32 ever did.

    Sorry, in all my years I never heard of someone wanting to use an older computer technology over a newer one. Especially your OS file system.

    Care to enlighten me ?

    Pete

    I was just curious, I didn't know it was that much better. Thanks for clearing this up for me.
