    I am trying to format a 750GB hard drive to fat 32 so my dvd player will recognise it.

    I'm running 62-bit Windows 7 and for this reason didn't use swissknife. I used this link http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm

    It worked, except now the hard drive only shows 185GB of space. Why would it do this and how can I reverse it back to 750GB?

    Thanks :)

    I ended up using a program on a computer with XP. Took longer to download the program than to format.
