  • uSD partitionning

    Dear All,

    In order to use screen grab application provided by steve4690, I'm trying to make 2 partition on my uSD card.
    The first partition shall be in FAT format and the second one shall be RAW data containing my usefull images.

    When using RMPET 1.1 with "Let me specify parameters" option, I'm not able to specify the second partition and Graphic Composer tool doesn't see the second RAW data partition.

    How can I create this second partition?

    thank's for your reply.

    When RMPET was being developed it was thought that Windows would treat the partition tables on a uSD card the same as it does on a normal hard disk.

    In fact it doesn't, it 'observes' the first partition details and ignores the rest.

    Hence you only need to use the two buttons ('Delete Partition Table' and 'Create / Alter Partition Table') and the 'partition parameters' panel.

      I understand that I just have to use RMPET.
      When editing the partition table, in RMPET, the second line is disabled, then I'm not able to specify it.
      then, how can I create the second partition?

          Wouldn't hurt to have these instructions somewhere more prominent... FAQ maybe? Very helpful.
