Hello Yestorday I bought New Hard Drive for my Xbox 360 (RGH,JTAG,Freestyle 3)

The Hard Drive was formated as NTFS by default and I try to convert using windows basic format but it not give me the option to format it to FAT32 it only show me exFAT and NTFS 

so I tried to use the program Ease US Partition Master and i format it to FAT32  and it shows like the drive is in FAT32 but when i connected it to my xbox360 it's not recognised

Please Help i tried everything

Windows cannot format a FAT32 disk past 32GB but you can use a utility to format the drive to it's full capacity.

Edit: I am not sure why Xbox does not recognize the drive formatted by Easeus.

 

The utility I linked to is shown in this video.

Disk Management can't format partition larger than 32GB and file larger than 4GB. Since you have formatted use EaseUs Partition Master, it should be recognized. Or, maybe you can try AOMEI Partition Assistant to reformat it and try to connect it to Xbox.

As JohnC_21 said and i have used it before FAT32 Format program should work ok.

 

Ive done a Few Drives 250 - 500G drives for older TVs to display using Docking Stations.

 

You could also try - as i use these days - Minitool Partition Magic https://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html

Wipe the Drive and then Format as Fat32.
