    plug it into your jtag and go to system>memory> and click on usb memory device and configure it with like 256 mb of storage rest u can access thought xexmenu and things like that.

    i had the same problem a while ago use a program called Partition Wizard Home Edition it works very well with 1Tb hdd especially if your running vista

    download it from here Partition Wizard

    but remember it will only allocate something like 380Gb of space to each fat32 partition is i believe thats the maxium size fat32 can reach

    hope this solves your problem :P
