    Cheers guys, but unfortunately when it reached the end, the command prompt said:

    "The volume is too big for FAT32."

    :fuhrer:

    Waited like 6 hours for it to "format" as well!

    Will now try the thing you told me about chernij. Hope it works.

    In terms of the PS3 situation, I sent off the letter to Sony on Saturday, so I'm just waiting for a response now. I said in the letter to reply within 7 days, but who knows if/when I'll get a reply.. :dontknow:

    Will be good if they reply within that time. It must suck without a ps3 atm

    That FAT32 partition thing was an absolute knightmare when i did it a few months back, didn't even work properly on Vista, and had to use a computer with XP. Annoying!

    Why can't things be easy.. :lol: (maybe it is easy for some, but for me it was just annoyingly stupid!!)

    That happened to me when I tried it too... sorry but I don't know why I didn't say it then! Maybe because I thought it had worked because it was already at 94%?
    The thing that I posted before should work. I mean, it worked for me, so it should work for you too!

    It does suck. Back to uni soon, so I won't have as much time to play as I would have had over the summer.

    Not a lot has gone right for me in the past week or so! :sigh:

    Nah don't worry about it buddy. Thanks a lot for the link though - seems to be working so far! :thumbsup:

    Seems to be doing it quite quickly. I didn't tick "quick format" either, yet the progress bar is already about an eighth full!

    What does quick format/create a DOS startup disk do out of curiosity?

    Yeah, it's not been a great few days for Robin van Persie either!

    As long as Ade's punished for it, I'll manage to get over it. He's going to be berated like anything when he comes back to The Emirates though.

    The formatting progress bar is now about 3/5ths full! :yikes:

    Well given that the game is out in 1 month, it's pretty much done at that point. I do agree it's quite early, but remember Resident Evil 5 got an exclusive review almost 3 months before it was out from official Playstation magazine.

    in any case, the game is going to be immense, it's a bit like Halo ODST, Gran Theft Auto 5, Modern Warfare 2, Gran Turismo 5, God of War 3. We all know these games are going to score perfect 10's from several publications, whether they deserve it or not, simply because of the pedigree and high production values these games have.
