    You've read the readme, correct?

    The drive has to be formatted to FAT, not FAT32 or NTFS.

    what is the "letter" of your external drive on your computer?

    let's say it's X

    you'll click Start > Run
    type CMD and press Enter

    now, you'll type this in that black box that popped up.

    format X:\ /FS:fat /V:wads

    only change X to whatever your drive "letter" is

    A lot of devices use FAT, actually.


    I wouldn't format within Windows. Get a low-level formatting tool...
