Wonder if this will drop as low as the Michael Jackson one.

Bet it will be Fat32 format as well!

Well, the MJ Samsung S2 didnt like to be reformatted.

Also, with FAT32, you cant place files larger that 4gb... but you can with NTFS.

I had no problem reformating to Mac file type to work with my Apple TV.

can this be reformat to ntfs?

Yes - which is why I was wondering why being FAT32 was an issue.

(I have a 'normal' Samsung S2 640Gb - that came as FAT32 and was not problem to re-format).

OK - I see some people have reported issues reformatting these drives.

I saw a reference to using this Samsung utility:-
samsung.com/glo…tml

That actually is a tool to re-format as FAT32 and a set of instructions to format as NTFS in Windows - might be helpful if you did have problems.
