Hard Drive Format

    I am trying to Format my WD my passport 500GB Hard Drive but with no luck so far. Need to Format to FAT32 to my PS3 can access it.
    I tried last night with Vista but couldn,t do it and now tried it at work with Windows 7 and still cant do it but now the Drive has completely disappeared.
    Help will be appreciated, Thank you in Advance


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

    Vista and 7 will force NTFS instead.


    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:…htm
