Windows 7: NTFS to FAT32

windows 7

Hi everyone,
I have just bought a extenal HDD to load media on for use with my PS3,the only problem is i need to format it to FAT32.Available software does not seem to be compatable apart from Easeus partition master,the only problem with this is that i cannot put large HD files on it.
I have searched for hours trying to find a fix but there doesn't apear to be one for Windows 7.Anyone got any ideas.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Richie, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You should be able to connect the hard drive to your Windows 7 computer and format it as a FAT32 HDD. If FAT32 is not a option in METHOD ONE below, then you may be able to do so using METHOD TWO, but use the format fs=FAT32 quick command instead in step 8.

Partition or Volume - Create New

Hope this helps,
