I used to drag my MacBook to work every day and plug it into a TimeMachine Disk. Now since I have an iPad that's what I carry around and since I have always had a TimeMachine disk at home I would like to use the second TimeMachine disk on my windows machine. When I plug it in to my PC I can find it on my device manager page but it doesn't show up on the MyComputer screen. Can someone let me know how I can format this TimeMachine disk with dare I say FAT32?

Thanks,

-d

You can easily do so in Disk Utility. Just select the partition, change your partition (from current) to whatever you want (1, 2, 3 partitions etc) and select msdos as your partition type.
