How to format not used SD partition?
#1
Hi. I would like to know how to format the partition of the SD card not used by Moode. I have no expanded the system space so the partition is still free without format. I would like to format it in EXT using ssh in Moode itself.  Is it possible?  Thanks!

Of course it is. All the usual Linux tools are available from the command line. Google is your friend.

Ok.  Thank you.  I will search how to do it without formating the Moode partition Smile

Update: I think i can not see the empty partition. I attach an image of my mounted drives: a 16gb SD Card with Moode and external USB Flash

Hold on, I spoke without thinking. 

Even though there's space on the "drive" and in the drive's partition table, you may not be able to manipulate the partition table while the drive is in use. 

Probably easier to do this either on a separate Linux or Mac host or after booting your RPi from Raspbian. In the latter case, you could either boot Raspbian from a USB thumbdrive and then insert the moOde card into the uSD slot or boot Raspbian from another uSD card and use a USB/uSD adapter for the moOde card.

Sorry for the confusion.

Kent

Hello again. I succesfully created and formatted an Ext3 partition in the remain SD space not used by Moode. The problem now is that Moode can't recognize it even rescanning my whole library. Has anybody been succesfull doing it? Is Moode only able of reading its own partition?

I think your have to mount the partition as /SOME_NAME -t ext3

Something like that.

@SkripT

It would help if you would tell us what you want to accomplish with this new partition.

I used a terminal SSH window and manually monted the partition as you said.  Now Moode can read it. Many thanks Tim!

@TheOldPresbyope: I just want to use that space as media source outside the Moode partition

This will imho slow down the workflow of moOde
