FAT32 but not NTFS

Hi all.

I have two Quantum harddrives, both working fine, but... The second one is partitioned into 4, and the last one of these is causing me some headache. I prefer using NTFS but that partition will only be formatted into FAT/FAT32 and not NTFS. It's presently running FAT32 and does so without any problems whatsoever, but can't I format it into NTFS????

Please help..

Formatting

I've tried to format it to NTFS using...

- explorer (WinXP standard)
- Partition Magic

But neither works

If you have tried converting from the dos prompt but it gives you some sort of message that it can't access the drive, then after that message appears if it asks you to scedule a conversion the next time your system boots up, say yes. The next time your system boots up, it should convert the drive before anything else is loaded.

Yer freakin' me out, man! :eek:

Seriously, I don't know why it won't convert for you. What kind of messages are you getting when you try to format and/or convert it?
