    the program doesnt run on windows 7, apparantly not compatible.

    Are you sure the drive is not already Fat32?

    I thought most external hard drives were formated Fat32

    Most people want to go from Fat32 to NTFS so they can store files over 4Gb

    Its definately NTFS. I want to put my movies on it so i can use it with my dvd, maybe it'll be easier for me just to connect my laptop to my telly and just play movie through laptop.

    I have the same drive and had to format it so the PS3 would recognise it, used Swissknife though (on XP). You could try Easeus (]http//ww…om/) which should work under Windows 7.
