Tips for a great answer:
Turn your computer on and plug the external hard drive into the computer.
Open "Computer Management" by clicking "Start," "Control Panel," "System and Security," "Administrative Tools" and "Computer Management."
Click "Disk Management" in the left pane under "Storage."
Locate your external drive from the list of hard drives connected or installed on your computer.
Right-click the drive and select "Format."
Select a file format from the drop-down menu. Choose "NTFS" if you will be using the external hard drive with a computer that uses Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP.
If you will be using the hard drive with an older version of Windows, select "FAT32."
This is a much less common format.
Click "OK" twice and your external drive is formatted. Once the drive is formatted, it is properly set up to be used with your computer.
hope this helps
