    So I partitioned my drive a while back for use with the USB loader and more general PC things.
    Now Im trying to utilize the 2nd partition (the NTFS side) for homebrew apps; but most (including MPlayer) won't recognise it as its the 2nd partition.

    Could anyone advise me on how to re order the partitions (preferably without losing the data).
    I would be very grateful..

    Thanks so much! Seriously!!

    Personally I prefer using gparted. Boot it off a cd or flash drive, and have fun partitioning
