I have a Maxtor 1-touch that I have been using on my Mac through a PCMCIA adapter to store my music. This computer crashes on me on a regular basis now. However, the big issue comes with me wanting to escape this sinking ship. My external HD, takes multiple tries of turning on/off (so does my Ipod for the matter) to finally be recognized. During transfers, the computer will freeze with great regularity...and then the process is repeated. Like I said, I am trying to escape, but my external drive is only recognized on this computer. I have tried another Mac (Imac) to no avail, and have tried multiple new PC's. With the PC I do get the auto recognition of a device getting plugged in, but it doesn't show up as a drive under 'My Computer.' I can only see it in the PC device manager where it is listed as maxtor One-Touch USB Device. At this point I want to just reclaim my external drive, can someone tell me how to reformat it as a FAT32 so that I can use it with both Mac and PC?
