    windows xp can use ntfs. But it really doesn't matter, both work. i use fat32 and have no problems.

    On fat32 file system it is games over a certain amount (2/3gb i think) that wont be able to be copied as it has something to do with the fat32 system.

    If you want ntfs then you are going to have to format your hard drive and select to format it to ntfs.

    you can still easily copy games even over 4gigs, dvd decrypter splits the image into 2 and creates a .mds file that you burn that links the images together.

    o yes forgot about that. But if the game is on dl then it wont be able to be copied.

    With the growing amount of dvd-9 games coming out it may be better to convert to ntfs.
