Formatting an external USB Mass Storage

by muraliget In reply to Seagate External Drive - ...

I faced same problem earlier with USB 64 gb drive. At last I have fixed it with HP USB Disk storage format tool. This utility software is freely available from net. It is to be noted that the formating in NTFS was not possible even with this software. I have used Fat32 and fixed. Hope that this reply is useful for many....
