Default Re: usb hdd help

What operating system are you in?? Windows, etc...

In Windows XP:
- Open My Computer
- Right click the hard drive
- Choose "Format..."
- Choose NTFS for the file system from the drop down menu.
- Hit Start

Note that you will lose all data on the drive, so be sure to back it up.
