Troubleshooting

"Disk full" message on my Philips HDD

Hard disks come pre-formatted in FAT32. This has a limit of 4 GB as the maximum file size. If you exceed that amount (e.g. 5 GB), a Windows error message will appear saying that the disk is full.

To avoid this, you can convert the hard disk to NTFS, which will allow larger files to be written.

The information on this page applies to the following models: SPD5220CC/00 .
