Hi guys; im new here..
i was just wondering, i have a maxtor mini 120gb usb external hard drive and for some reason i cannot format it into fat 32, im using windows vista, and therefore windows itself will not allow me to format into anything but ntfs however i have tried other programs, (partion magic and swissknife) with no luck. Swissknife actually worked fine until i connected the drive and then it shut itself down, there has to be a way to format it into fat32, somebody please help!

thanks in advance;

Obvious question.... why FAT32 ? :)

Are you trying to format the entire drive as FAT32, or have you partioned it into smaller sections ?
