I would be really happy if somebody would help me with this.
I bought my WD Elements yesterday so i could have movies on it and plug it in to the TV/Xbox360 and watch them from there. So i put about 200gb worth of stuff on it and it wouldn't work when i tested it. It turns out i need to format it to fat32 to get it to work on xbox360. So now to my questions,
1) How do i format it to fat32?
2) Will this restrict me in any way?
3) How much time will it take?
4) Will i have to delete all the files before formatting?

2- files can't be larger than 4 GB
3- couple of minutes or less
4- formatting will erase all data .

You can also use Acronis to format the drive to FAT32, or do it from a Mac that does not require the use of third party software: How to format a WD external hard drive in FAT32 (to use in Windows or Mac OSX)
