Re: How To Format A Hard Drive To FAT32 In Windows 7 or ...

I needed to format a drive for my son so he can use it on his PS3, the PS3 requires a drive formatted to FAT32. I used the command: format .FS/FAT32 X: on the drive, it is a 500GB. After waiting for it fo finish after about 6 hours it still came bask as NSFS???? How do I fix this so it will format it to fat32, this laptop (my old one) is Windows 7, my new one is Windows 8. I figure if Windows 7 won't do it, the WIndow 8 sure won't??? Any ideas??

fat32format couldn't find my external drive to format... so I did another search and found that the easiest way to format a big drive to FAT32 is just to use a Mac... the Disk Utility program that comes standard on a Mac will use FAT32 if you specify "MSDOS" - and NOT ExFat. Takes seconds.
