Is WDBAAU0015HBK is fat 32 system file format? IsWDBAAU0015ABK is also available? How to convert my existing seagate 1tb hard disk from ntfs to fat32 with out making partition?


You can convert FAT32 to NTFS, but you cannot reverse this process. If you want to set up the hard drive for FAT32 you need to delete the NTFS partition the create a new partition and then format in FAT32.

Not able to detect the disk


We're going to need more information to troubleshoot, but if it's a new drive that's never been set up follow the instructions below. If these instructions aren't helpful, then please post back with more info and I'll help you further.

Your external hard drive likely has no partitions so Windows has no drive to mount. Follow these steps to create and format a partition for your external hard drive.

1. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
2. Type "Control" into the dialog box.
3. Double-click "Administrative Tools."
4. Double-click "Computer Management."
5. Select "Disk Management" under Storage.
6. Find the 250 GB External Hard drive in the right pane.
7. Right click on the drive and select "Create new partition".
8. After the partition is created you will need to format the partition.
9. Format the partition as NTFS unless you plan on booting off the hard drive, in which case format the partition as FAT32. You can also create multiple partitions if you want.
10. Enter My Computer and you will now see your external hard drive.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

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

Tried to partition drive using disk mgr in windows xp sp2, won't allow a right click to partition into 2 (1) one tb partitions


Delete any existing partition on the drive.
Be careful! This will delete any "data" files on the disk-drive!

Then, you should be able to create an "extended" partition, with two "logical" drives inside that "extended" partition.

This won't be the best solution for you perhaps because I'm not a windows guy, but download the gparted (just google for gparted) cd image, burn it to disk and boot it up. Use that to partition and format the drive.

Hello, I bought WD My Book Essential 1 TB but whenever i connect it to my Samsung DVD player it doesn't get recognized. Any help? Thanks


Most probably the format of your hard drive is NTFS. Samsung DVD players only recognize FAT32 formats. If you have the patience and resources try to change the format of your hard drive to FAT32. Better yet since it is a 1TB try to create a partition one NTFS and one FAT32 because FAT32 cannot go beyond 4GB for files.

Hope this helps.
