Software claims to do this for you:
Convert NTFS to FAT32

Testimonial: "Convert to FAT Not FAT 32"
The web information you posted got hit by the Fixya phishing catcher, but luckily you gave enough information to make a suggestion.
If you are going to connect to any older computers then the assumption of using FAT32 is correct and you should stick with that eg. windows 95 etc.
However from XP onward the ability to read NTFS was available.
NTFS does offer minor security benefits as well as better file handling.
My recommendation would be for NTFS
Even XP that was setup with FAT32 has an option to convert to NTFS . It does not take too long and in my view has shown itself to be of benefit.
(its a one way deal so if you choose to use it then there is no going back)

Ok this fix will erase all Partitions on the drive, Make sure you have all data back'd up.
Go to Start menu > All programs > Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. Or Type cmd in Start menu search box and hit Ctrl+ Shift+ Enter.
You should have a black MS-DOS prompt on your screen. Type DISKPART in and press enter. Another window will open
Type: list disk It will the display list of devices with memory storage. Find your disk, It should be in a Table(kinda). You have to locate it by its size. so look for 1TB(1000GB) In this Example its Disk 2, yours may differ.
type in: Select disk 2
Execute the rest one by one: CLEAN CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SELECT PARTITION 1 FORMAT FS=FAT32 ASSIGN EXIT
Wait for one command to complete before running another
You should be left with a working FAT32 Device :P

You are trying to conect this disk to the standalone Sony bluray device with USB cable?
You are sure sony have implemented this functions (external disk support) on this player?
Now knowing enough about the sony device, you should first of all see through the users manual. There could be a FAT(32) / NTFS issue. Some devices like this does not support NTFS, and the drive must be formated with FAT32.

You need to format the hard drive to FAT32 and then copy your 80Gb of music files to this hard drive.
