    I've had a problem with my hard drive since FAT32 can't hold anything over 4GB. How do I change my hard drive to NTFS format?

    are you using windows 2000 or xp ? if so go to a command prompt and enter the following

    convert C: /fs:ntfs

    beadvised that once it is converted it cannot be converted back to fat32, but thats good cause fat32 sucks.

    im afraid you cant do anything in ME... since it's hybrid of 9x and 2k... sadly ME fail in LOTS of things... if i was you i would get me 2k or XP... they use the ntfs file system... the 9x and ME use fat32/16 older file system... sadly you cant convert it to ntfs..
