Topic: GParted on iPod 80GB
I'd like to prtition the hard disk of my iPod 5.5G.
It's a 80GB hard disk with a sector size of 2048 byte.
fdisk can print the partition table
Note: sector size is 2048 (not 512)
The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 2432.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
(e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)
Command (m for help): p
Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2432 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 2048 = 32901120 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 4 128394 0 Empty
/dev/sda2 5 2432 78011640 b W95 FAT32
while gparted only shows an unallocated space of 18.63 GB.
Total Sectors: 39070080.
I'm using Fedora Core 5, kernel 2.6.20.
gparted 0.3.3 and libparted 1.8.2
It seems that gparted thinks the size is 512, (1/4 of the correct one, so the space is 1/4 of about 80GB).
Is there anything that can be done?
