You need to use a small util to format a large drive with FAT32.

Vista and 7 will force NTFS instead.

Try http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/download/fat32format.zip

Virus check the file as I haven't re-downloaded it just incase. Actually don't bother I just checked it fine here. This is the one I have used.

Alternatively, use Easeus Partition Master Home Edition, which is free for home usage and gives you a complete disk partition and management toolkit:
