You can reformat if you have it as ntfs, I'm not sure why you think you can't, but you can, whoever told you that is wrong. Anyway, there is no reason to have it as fat32 over ntfs. ntfs is just better, fat32 is outdated.

When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
