    I have a Maxtor One-Touch that I want to start using on my PC. I currently have it connected to my Powerbook G3 running OS X. I can connect the drive to my PC, and while it recognizes the connection as a drive in Device Manager, I can't use it, as it doesn't pop up or show up in the My Computer folder. How do I reformat this to FAT32? The only option that I see in Disk First Aid. I only see OS X Entended, Standard, UNIX, and Black....
    Can someone tell me how to do this in OS X or on my PC? I don't mind losing all of my data on the drive. Thanks
