Format WD4000BEV?

HI

My Model is  WD 4000BEV which is 400GB capacity.

I dont know wheather it is My Passport Essential or My Passport Elite or My Passport Studio. – how to find it?

I want to format it. can i format it with ntfs or do i need to format in fat32. Any software to format this model…

Thank you,

Bye

The format depends on your OS and what you intend to do with the drive. For Windows use NTFS. For video players you frequently need FAT32 also usable on Windows. FAT32 has a max file size of 4 gig. I don’t know much about Macs FAT32 will also work there and NTFS will be read only on a Mac.
