I have a friend who got an external drive. It came formatted as FAT16
with 8.3 filenames. I reformatted it for her to a NTFS. I believe that
there is a command that is able to convert the file system to FAT32. I
don't know why they don't come with NTFS.
But I always suggest that they reformat the drives.
