    Default Format HD to FAT32 with Apple iMac

    Is there a way to format a HD to FAT32 using Apple?? I cant seem to do this in disc utility. Is there another free programme out there that can do this?

    ExFAT should work OK, in plain terms its the same as FAT32 but doesn't have the limit of 4GB files.

    Formats explained http://www.howtogeek.com/235596/what...xfat-and-ntfs/ also compatible with MAC's
