Kingston data traveler 200 128 GB format ex Fat 32 to NTFS


Would you please clarify your problem. But i suggest that you would like to change the file system from FAT to NTFS. If you want to do that then follow the following simple steps
1. Go to start and click o RUN
2. Type CMD and press enter
3. in the Command prompt, type the following

convert E: /fs:ntfs

In this example, you are converting Drive E to NTFS. Note that you can you this command to simply change FAT16 or FAT32 system files to NTFS but you can not simply reverse the situation. This is because when changing from NTFS to FAT6 or FAT32, the system will delete the partition and erase all the data and personal files on it

I cannot copy files FROM my Western Digital 500GB


Hi,

Check the file system of your hard drive. If your PC is recognizing it, check if its a FAT or NTFS. If it is NTFS then you have to reformat it using your Mac and choose FAT. Mac OS recognizes NTFS as a read only drive. If you plan using it with your PC and MAC you should format it using your mac and choose MS-DOS in disc Utility. You cannot format the drive using your PC Computer with a FAT file system because of the capacity. Only Mac can format it with a FAT file system.
