    Have you blown away the partition and tried again? I don't think you can format from NTFS to FAT32 you actually have to blow away the whole partition and recreate volumes.

    I agree, an odd choice of words or expression. You can go FAT32-> NTFS but AFAIK, not the reverse. We do have a USB HD gaming and configuration Recommended Guide on the whole subject --- look here.
