Fat32Formatter : Prepares your External Hard Drive For PS3/Xbox 360

Posted by

Fat32Formatter :  Setting up a new external hard drive for use with your PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 should be a simple task. Maybe, however, when you plugged the drive into your Windows system and attempted to right-click and format it you only had two options: NTFS and exFAT, neither of which plays nice with your Xbox 360 or PlayStation consloe .

While you could use diskpart to take care of things, not everyone enjoys command-line tinkering. And when there’s an easy-to-use alternative like Fat32Formatter — why bother? Download the sub-200Kb Zip file, extract Fat32Formatter, and fire it up. Select a physical drive from the dropdown menu, click a partition to format, and click the start button when ready. You may also want to check the quick format box — unless you enjoy watching grass grow or paint dry.

Fat32Formatter is freeware and made by TOKIWA to format drive larger than 32GB to FAT32, which means it can walk around the OS restriction that you can format drive to FAT32 only the size up to 32GB on Windows 7/vista/2000.
