Aldi Gericom external HDD problem

  VernonTurner 11:11 08 Sep 04

Hi everyone.

Is anyone else having problems with the Gericom external 160gb HDD. I bought one from Aldi in the UK and just cannot convert the volume from FAT32 to NTFS. Have had lots of good advice from contributors in this forum, followed the Microsoft conversion instructions exactly but getting nowhere. I'm using Windows XP HE. Any more hints would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Have not got that external hard drive, but do have a couple. It should be easy to do.

Right click my computer and pick manage > enter.

Then pick disk management, you should see your external drive on the right, like this click here

Right click on the drive and pick format. Has it got the drop down box like this click here. If so pick NTFS and it should format to that.
