External HDD issue
#1
I can't seem to get my external HDD to play nice with Remix OS. I've formatted it fat32, I plug it in and it's recognised but the name of it is EFI (not what I named it) and the only thing I can see on the drive is lost.dir

Any thoughts?

Wrong partition scheme. Try to switch from GPT to MBR.

Thanks for the tip, I will try this out tomorrow. 

Does Remix only support external drives that are formatted fat32? It would be great to be able to use exfat, or anything else other than fat32 really!
