I’ve made a silly mistake and I’m not sure how to go about correcting it. I bought a WD My Passport Essential 250GB portable drive. I put a few divx files and pictures on it so that I could hook it up to my PS3. When I connected it to the PS3, the drive wasn’t recognized. So, I did a little research and I read that you have to convert it from an NTFS to a FAT32. I followed the directions on a site, Yahoo answers I think, that directed me to delete the NTFS partition and then repartition it to FAT32 with a software called CompuApps Swissknife. So I deleted the partition, but when I downloaded and installed CompuApps Swissknife, it kept giving an error and crashing (apparently CompuApps Swissknife does not work with XP ServicePack 2).
So now when I hook up the drive to the PC, all I see is the WD Smartware (H:). Before, there was also an (Drive I:) partition, but now it’s gone.
Have I destroyed the drive? I don’t care about recovering my files. I just want the drive to be as was and able to work on my PS3. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
