Format your hardrive for Mac OS:
Go to Disk Utilities under the go menu in your finder. Select the external drive and click on the erase tab. Clikc erase again and it formats the drive. You can now copy files onto the drive.

If you really must have fat 32 (maybe for MAC use ?) then windows itself does not support doing a fat format on large drives.
However there is a fix Yup thats why they call it FIXYA
Here is a link to just what you need
Hope its what you need and good luck

to format the drive so that it works on a mac, it needs to be formatted in FAT32 format rather than NTFS format on the pc. you can download free software called swissknife that lets you do this. make sure you back up everything on the drive before you format it in swissknife other wise all your data will be lost

If the drives' filing system is NTFS, then you will need to change it to either FAT32, if you would still like to use it on a Windows PC, or HFS+

yes you could simply format the harddrive in Fat32 using your macos that would be the best solution but don`t forget to backup your data by copy pasting the files on your mac or something else and after that to move them on the external hdd again to be available on the windows machine
