    This is a limitation of your PC. Since you didn't tell me what kind of PC you had, you will need to go to the manufacturer's website and download the latest BIOS for your computer. The instructions to flash the BIOS must be followed precisely.

Perhaps there're other drive letters allocated on your HDD. For example: Like 120GB on D: drive, 70 GB on your E: drive etc.

If that doesn't help then maybe your HDD isn't seated in properly.

I wish to use the seagate hardrive to back up music on a brennan jb7 i am having problems formatting the seagate to fat32


Im not sure why you want Fat32 but with that old file system a partitition cant be larger than 32GB otherwise it wont let you format with Fat32. You can create as many partitions as you like maybe have some Fat32 and some NTFS if you like. Just typy in disk management where you normally do a search or run with XP and that will let you organise all of your partitions. Cheers and please vote

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

Why i cant format my seagate 500gb potable hard drive, when format it in quick format its show an error that the hard drive not successfully formatted. what should i do? please help me, i need it asap....


The disk-drive inside the enclosure is "dying".
If the warranty still is valid, exercise the warranty to get it replaced, at minimal cost to you.
If the warranty has expired, open the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, and take the disk-drive to a computer-store. Buy a new, compatible, drive, and then "transplant" it into the enclosure, to "revive" your external file-storage appliance.
