As in title:
just recently bought a 250gb Seagate external HDD and need to format to FAT32 as i am using it to back-up my ps3 and it will not recognise NTFS.

I have tried
RUN: format L:/FS:FAT32
which took a few hours but it hasnt changed the file system to FAT32

[FONT=Verdana]How to Format External Hard Drive to FAT32 in Windows

The second option from the guide above should do the trick - if not please let us know and I can post in some more links to other guides & utilities out there.

Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:
