FAT32 Hard Drives I need an external hard drive that is formated in FAT32 format. Any ideas on how to tell what the format is for an external hard drive, or recommendations for a FAT32 external HD?

I don't think you should try to reformat the Falcon...she may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid.

True, in some circumstances, reformatting the hard drive could fix the hyperdrive. But if you don't know what format it's in, you'll need an astromech droid.

I don't know! Format casual.

Uhh... why is this on the Lego Millennium Falcon forum?
But anyway, older portable drives will usually come formatted for FAT32. Newer drives will almost always be NTFS.

It is possible to reformat all hard drives. First, check with the manufacturer and often they have utilities to do this (sometimes these utilities are installed on the hard drive when you get it.l)
Otherwise you will have to search the net. Note that the Windows format utility will not format large portable drives to FAT32 so you need to get a separate program to do this.

Now.. back to the Millennium Falcon...

I wouldn't be suprised if some external hard drives use the NTFS system instead of the FAT32. It's easy to reformat it though.

I'm pretty sure most external hard drives come formatted in FAT32. If the drive you buy is not, you can easily reformat it yourself.
