Re: How to resize the IMG USB Live-Debian pendrive ?

Because do you know that windows XP does not like many partitions on a pendrive. I want to use my pendrive still under Windows XP.

So how to make the pendrive useable for storage. Come on. It is possible with bootable knoppix pendrives, I used it to store my data. I added a folder : data on the root on the pendrive and put all my Gygabites in there. The knoppix bootable remainns.
Why with Debian nobody never really cares about users, or human oriented linux ?
Btw, Ext3 sucks, it crashes all the time. I am right ... NTFS is better :)
Happy Tux !

Thanks but that was not the question.

Is there someone that knows how to make this pendrive to the full pendrive? (not making a new partition please)

A non expert explanation would be welcome or preferably if it is too complicated or linux crazy pro tricks, with windows XP, please.

Thank you in advance if by chance anyone knows how and how to share/explain it too ;)


The answer given already was a reasonable one.  Resizing a read-only partition doesn't make any sense, as you couldn't actually do anything with the extra space.  But by adding a *writable* partition, now you can make use of the added space.

What problem do you think you're solving by trying to avoid creating another partition?
