The unit can handle a maximum of 4 MTR partitions, no matter how small

If the capacity of the SD card is more than 8 GB, use the DATA wheel to
set the size of the MTR partition, and press the F2 [EXEC] button.
A pop-up message warning that all songs will be erased appears.
5. Press the F3 [YES] button to format the SD card.
For example, if you format a 16 GB SD card with 4GB MTR partitions, 12
GB are left for MTR partitions after 4 GB is used for the FAT partition. Three
partitions are created. Two are 4 GB and the last one is 3 GB. (Since 1GB is
actually 1024 MB, the total size of the partitions does not always match
the SD card size.)
When formatting finishes the
menu screen reopens.
After formatting, one song is automatically created in each MTR partition.
To cancel formatting, press the F4 [NO] button.
