Not true.

You can only format a fat drive to 32Gb drive WITHIN WINDOWS.

But there are other ways of doing it, and most external hard drives are formatted Fat32.

FORMATTING A HARD DRIVE DELETES EVERYTHING OFF IT.

I believe there are utilities to CONVERT a drive from Fat32 to NTFS.

But even doing that there is a danger of losing your files, so it is best to back everything up BEFORE doing any conversion.

1 of these should work. the low level format one try that one last. I think you already tried swiss so try fat32 and low level

Sorry, thought he meant he had backed up his data ONTO the external drive.

Misread it.

funny thing is you would think an xbox could read ntfs its a MS filesystem after all.

partition magic will do the trick, is this old Xbox or 360
