Hi Tom .

Been there using the laptop that is not as upto date  and completely
redid the partition and formatted one of them vfat  still the same on
this machine but ok on the laptop  .

I need to keep them vfat as they are actually for use in the car it
takes mp3's on usb drives (max 4Gb) and only read vfat (and only mp3
not ogg)
