Error message during conversion from Fat32 to NTFS

I have 1TB Seagate External HDD Extreme but didnt succesfully converted because of these Errors during conversion:
"Windows found errors on the disk, but will not fix them because disk checking was run without the /F <fix> parameter."
"Lost chain cross-linked at cluster 2306188. Orphan truncated."
"Convert lost chain to files <y/n>?" On this i select "Yes"
"32 KB in 1 recoverable files."
"Windows found problems with the file system"
"Run CHKDSK with the /F <fix> option to correct these."
------------------- KB total disk space
----------- KB in ----hidden files
----------- KB in ----folders
------------------- KB in -----files
------------------- KB are available

---------- bytes in each allocation unit
------------------- total allocation units on disk
-------------------- alllocation units available on disk
"The volume may have inconsistencies. Run Chkdsk, the disk checking utility."
"The conversion failed."
"F: was not converted to NFTS"

So i ran "Chkdsk /F" on F drive but still didnt fix the problem.
I dont know what to do. Please help.

Download Seagate Seatools and have it fix the errors. From memory, it should fix Maxtor and most likely external Seagate drives.
