Idea of more easy use of cards > 4 gb

because i not very often need more than 4 gb of SD Card, but sometimes i want use larger, i get the idea to create 1. parttion  as FAT16 with 4gb size.

2. Partition is then the rest of RAM as FAT32

But there need a function in chdk that can set and disable the switch to second partion on boot

so when you have a shooting and need only 4 GB then all files can see in windows easy.

Now when you notice that your card is full you can change that 2. Partition is use, reboot and chdk switch to the other partiton to use more SD card mem.
So only when you really need more than 4 GB  of ram you need 2. partition access for store images. later switch partitions

do other find this feature usefull too and maybe a chdk expert coder can add a menu entry, to enable / disable the choose of second partition when the card contain 2 Partion ?

thanks, i test now with 2 FAT16 1.9 gb and 1.7 gb partitions on 4 gb card.And it work as your pdf tell.

Great.

I can boot in both partitions and chdk do not swap automatic and the partition camera use is always see in windows
chdk seem on larger partitions not always use 2. partition

the thread can move to chdk help  or delete from feature request
