There seem to be some free software that will format to Fat32 but it all looks very complicated.

Does anyone make a external hard drive already fomated Fat32 as I really dont want to reformat the one I have.

Thanks in advance and remember I'm over my head here.
Windows xp comes with "windows movie maker" which should be able to "capture" the video directly w/out any fat32/ NTFS issues.

Fat32's limit is 2gb file size limit, which raw video can become larger
