I have seen the article on converting FAT to NTFS but not the other way around.
You cant go from NTFS > FAT32 in XP, but I believe Partition Magic 7 wil do it, although I dont know what ill effects could happen. If you do try it, I'd back up all important info on that partition, as theres probably a fair chance something could go wrong.
But yes, PM7 claims to be able to do this, but I'm not going to try it
Or you could just back up the info and format to Fat32.
If I might ask, why would you want to do this? Fat32 isnt going to really affect games or DVDs much better than NTFS. I doubt He'd know the difference, and your giving up all the security and stability that NTFS offers.
Sorry, just curious.
