You cannot change an NTFS drive back to a FAT drive using Windows.

Do use a third party?

Partition Magic does it...

You can use the WinXP instal to format the drive to Fat32

Yes i know...

But if a drive is already formatted in NTFS you cannot change it back to FAT32 via windows. (ignore the formatting for now)

Thats where i asked the question "Do use a third party?"

To which Zaxifone replied saying PM can do it.

The only way to get the drive back to FAT32 with windows (without a third party) is to format the drive and choose FAT32 as the file system.
