usb hard disc format

Post by modras7 on Thu Jan 24 2013, 18:10

Hi, I have a 500GB external hard disc, I want to format to fat32 using the blade support process, but I'm stuck on number(6)"click on delete partition" this option is not there in disc management on my pc. I'm using vista. Thanks for your help.

Should be able to change it with PC--Computer-Removable Disc (or whatever)--Right Click--Format (change to Fat )

Using a 500 GB with NTFS works a treat on Vista

..I'm just following the suggestions from blade that hard discs over 30 GB should be formatted to fat32, I'm confused.. what do I have to do for the suggested blade support method to work? Thanks..

Why not format it with PC to FAT.

no need to create partitions,i dont think you will get the option to format to fat 32 on such a large drive , if not this will do the job in 2 mins, ive used it a few times for ps3 etc
