Format 250gb to fat32

Postby J0KER » Sun Apr 04, 2010 10:05 am

I have a 250gb external hard drive, i have created a primary partition using 100% of the hdd within partition magic 7, how do i format it using the FAT32 file system as it only gives me 2 options. One is NTFS which my XBOX 360 wont read and the other is LINUX EXT2.

Does anyone know how to format the drive with fat32.

if you're running XP, this explains how to use format from the command line to specify fat32 with the fs: option. dunno if this is valid with vista/win7.

right click, and format, specify file system as FAT32
