    Question Formatting PS3 External to Fat32 help?

    I've just bought a second 1TB external hdd for use with JB PS3, the 1st 1 came formatted FAT32, but new 1 is NTFS, I'm running Win 7 Ultimate and need to know what programme I can use to format the drive, I tried dos command (cmd) to format but after 12 hours reached 99 percent then said the volume was too big for FAT32, I know of programmes such as swissknife, partition magic etc, but these won't run on Win 7, a solution to my problem greatly appreciated.

    Try using this Download Easeus Partition Master software:

    If that didn't work, go to the official site of your external HD ans search for softwares. I know that western digital has a software that lets your format large partitions to fat32.

    Hope this helps!

    I can also recommend Easeus Partition Master Home Edition. As I formatted my 2.5" drive to FAT32 last week for the PS3.
