Hey Folks.

This is weird. I have a Seagate external hard disk and it seems that it's a Fat drive (windows) although it mounts on the desktop it does not display in the startup disk... why? Can you guys help me format it to NTFS?






Thanks.

John Clay answered the "why"

To format any drive you need to go into Disk Utility under Utilities in the Application folder.
Or you can just go to the Finder>Go>Utilities>Disk Utility

It should also be noted that Mac OS X does not have write ability to NTFS-formatted disks. There are third-party programs that will do this, however.
