I recently bought a 2 Tb WD My Passport external hard drive. I want to format it in FAT32 but when I select format on the drive FAT32 isn't one of the options to format in. Anyone know why I cant do it this way? Is there some way I can do this? Thanks.

I'm pretty sure this is what I used back when I needed my 2TB external to work on my PS3.

Yeah, I still use that thing. Works like a charm. Just make sure you check the 'Quick Format' box.

I tried this program and it isn't working out real well. I basically just want 1 hard drive split into 2 halves. When I use the program it puts half in one partition and the whole of the entire hard drive into another. This seems like a simple program. What could I be doing wrong here, Are there other programs I could try? Thanks.
