ntfs to fat32

Client sent a Western Digital Elements hard drive to transfer EX files to. It is a new NTSF drive out of the box.

I can't seem to find any way to reformat the drive for Mac/Fat32.

I don't know about Mac, but if you can connect it to a PC, type the following in the command shell:

format "drive_letter": /FS:FAT32

Hi Ed,

To format a disk in OS X using Fat32 file structure, launch "Disk Utility", select the disk in question in the left-hand sidebar, then in the horizontal nav in the upper right quadrant select erase, then you will see a "format" drop down menu, select MS-DOS (fat) and then click the appropriate buttons from there.

Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility. Select the drive in the left side, then click the Erase tab, change the format to either Mac OS Extended (Mac read and write only) or MS-DOS (FAT) (Mac and PC read and write, 4GB file size limit.)
