How format a HD to FAT32 if the options are only NTFS and exFAT?

I'm trying to format this drive to FAT 32 on windows Vista but it is only giving me this two options; NTFS & exFAT. I did the exFAT (mac and windows can see it but not the router.) Are there any other options this is available on the net?

Open a command prompt. Start, Run, type cmd <enter>
If the drive you want to format is F: for example type
format F: /FS:FAT32

How to remove write protection from sony hd-e1


PC & MAC use different file systems.
It sounds like your hard disk is formatted as NTFS. NTFS will allow a MAC to read from the disk, but not write to it. You need to re-format it using FAT32 (if your MAC is older) or exFAT(if your MAC is fairly new)..
FAT32 will allow a maximum partition size of 2TB(when formatted from a MAC) and a maximum single file size of 4GB.
exFAT will allow pretty much any file size.
NB:Formatting a hard drive DELETES ALL FILES on the hard drive, so backup whatever is important before you re-format it.
1. Open Applications > Utilities
2. Choose you hard drive from the list on the left
3. Choose the "Erase" tab and choose your desired format (FAT32/exFAT)
4. Type in a new name..Click "Erase"

I have a 1tb Buffalo HD-PCU2 ministation. I want it formatted as Fat 32 to use on my Humax recorder but Windows vista or 7 don't recognise it? Is it fixable?


FYI: fay32 doesn't support files larger than 2GB so if your putting movies than do NTFS.

To format as FAT32 you have to open an command prompt as admin. Window Button > All Programs > Accessories > Right CLICK command prompt and run as admin.

<VOL> = your drive letter ex E:
Command to format as FAT32

format <VOL> /FS:FAT32 /X

The problem is that Windows doesn't format anything larger than 32GB as FAT32. You need to use a specific tool to do so. Have a look at this website

How do I format my new Seagate 500GB FreeAgent GoFlex Hard Drive to Fat32 for use with Xbox 360? I am using Windows 7 and when I open up the formatting options only NTFS and exFAT are available.


Windows Disk Management can only format a hard drive less than 32 GB to FAT32. If you want to format your 500GB drive to Fat 32, you need to use third party program like AOMEI Partition Assistant. http://www.disk-partition.com/free-partition-manager.html

You cannot format FAT32 on such a big drive unless you break it up into many, many, suitable partitions, to format a drive this size you MUST use NTFS....
You see FAT32 simply cannot mathematically address that amount of address space, it is just that simple.
The biggest size partition is 32 squared or 1024MB

You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps. Before you begin, note that the FAT32 file system has size limitations. In this version of Windows, you cannot create a FAT32 partition greater than 32 gigabytes (GB). In addition, you cannot store a file larger than 4 GB on a FAT32 partition. For more information, see Comparing NTFS and FAT file systems.
blank.gif Converting a hard disk partition or volume from NTFS to FAT32 requires that you reformat the partition, which will destroy any data on it. Be sure to back up any data you want to keep before you begin.
