I recently bought a seagate 1TB external hard drive..I'm not possitive what kind it is since I don't have the box with me. It's all black though and the S/N is 2GHKHFJM if it matters. I'm wondering if someone could tell me how to format the whole thing to FAT32 since windows won't do it because it's too big. It's currently RAW and I'm in the process of of using the command prompt to try and format it by using " format f: /FS:FAT32", thing is, last time I tried this I was formatting a partition (greater than 32GB) on a different external hard drive to FAT32 and it started, went through the whole process, and an hour or so later, after it reaches 100% it tells me the partition was too big for FAT32 and it couldn't be completed..so I don't want to have that happen again. So what can I do to format it? Also, haven;t had any luck with a program called swissknife that I always see people suggesting.

I think you can only use FAT32 on HDs up to 32GB?
I'm going to refer you over to wilders security forums, register over their and ask your questions in the "hardware" section
their are many experts over their who could probably answer your questions better and more quickly then the people here!
