    Hi, I tryed ripping gta:sa onto my computer but it had an error and sayed my file system dousn't support files larger than 4gigs, so I can't get the file on my computer.
    Can I adjust my computers settings somehow to allow for bigger files?? plz help.
    Also, is gta:sa a dvd-9 disk, so I can't burn it on a 4.7gig memorex dvd-r???

    if your running win xp you need to convert your file system from fat 32 to ntfs to support files larger than 4gb or try using dvd decrypter to create a split image file then burn the mds file and it will reassemble the complete image as it burns and the toc of gta sa is 4.19gb

    start-run type cmd and press enter
    then type
    convert c: /fs:ntfs
    and press enter

    where c: is the letter of the drive you store your games on (could also be d: or e: etc).

    Ok, Will that delete everything off the drive!!?? :|
    or will it just convert the files or somthing?? Cuse I can't loose my whole D drive.
    Whats the difference of the formates anyways?
    , fat32 is faster because it has smaller files?
    Thanks

    if you do the conversion the way sly suggests then no it shouldn't delete your drive it will just convert your file system and ntfs is a more efficent file system than fat 32 anyway

    i installed my PAL san andreas onto my hard drive using hdadvance with no problem. it registered as a 4Gb game.
    i read a lot of posts from people saying it wouldn't work but it does.
