New External HDD help –
Hey i want to put my backups on my external 1TB Hard Drive from WD Elements i got it from Tesco ( http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.206-4435.aspx ) as a cheap one... well i got two infact one for PC and one for ps3 but i cannot seem to format it to fat32 i tried using DOS and it took ages then it came back with too large to format to fat32 or something simmilar i also checked under windows and it says it can only format to exFat and NTFS.
so can you help me work out a way to format it to fat32 as it currently is NTFS and not picked up by the ps3
if you find your hard drive on the western digital site in download section they have a utility to format which i have used before and works.
