    Hi,
    I've made my HDD a full WBFS and i regret it now cause i want to throw some .avi files on there too.
    Can i make a new partition anyway or do i have to erase it all and start from scratch?
    thanks

    There's no way to resize your WBFS partition, so if you want to add FAT, the only thing you can do is wipe the whole thing. Also, when you repartition, be sure to make your FAT32 partition 1st and primary, if you want Mplayer-CE etc to see it.
