How do I format a caddy ext3

I’ve got an external 320GB caddy which I want to use to extend the storage on my PVR (Freesat) and need to format it ext3. Don’t need to access it or do anything else with it once formatted - just plug it into the PVR (and hope) :wink:

Are there any free utilities suitable for a muppet that I can use to do this from a windows machine.


GPARTED or one of it’s offshoots might do the trick - never used it myself.
or one of the utilities on Ultimate boot CD

If that wont work you could always boot the PC from one of the live distributions on CD/USB and use its tools to do the job.

There is thread dealing with the problem on AV forums

That’s great. Thanks all - Sorted :slight_smile:
