Hello Greak, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like you may have some corruption or a bad sector on the drive. In a elevated command prompt, run a chkdsk J: /F /R command. Afterwards see if you may be able to convert the drive.

If not, then you will need to backup what is on it that you do not want to lose, then will have to format the drive as NTFS instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello Ramesh, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If it's a RAW drive, then it's a unformatted drive. You may need to right click on the disk in Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) (see example screenshot below) and click on Initialize first, then you will be able to just format the drive as NTFS as normal.

Go to disk management and format to NTFS, back what you need first.
