Question about LaCie 301103U 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
How do I format an external hard disk USB 2.0 up to 500GB?
My option is up to 31.4GB only, either using Window Disk Manager or Acronis Partition Manager.
Thanks a lot and more power.
I had the same problem. The cause was that I was using a USB extension cable that wasn't compatible.
Its working fine now...besides, the disk does not need formatting before use (for windows)

Formatting it to ntfs should do the job

Windows 7 will format an external partition to FAT32, as long as it's 32GB or less. "Control Panel -> System and Security -> Administrative Options". Right click on "Computer Management", select "Run as an Administrator", double-click on "Storage" then "Disk Management", the right click on your external drive. Select "Shrink Volume", shrink it by 32GB or less, then right click on unallocated space, select format, and "FAT32" will show up as an option during the format wizard.
This is a way to create a small bit of space on an external hard drive for copying some files from Mac OS's to Windows.
