FAT32. Use the application called "Disk Utility" in the "Utilities" folder of your Applications.

For more info: External Hardrive formatting and More than one format.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

Another cracked egg in Finder > Help.

For Search> 'Format external hard drive' the only result that comes up is:

'Types of CD and DVD media that you can burn'. Helpfullness = 0

Just to let Apple know.
