Change portable hard drive from Fat 32 to NTFS.

I have tried this from another thread but it didn't work ("To convert your drives to NTFS:
Right click on 'my computer' and select 'manage'
From the computer management window, expand storage and select 'disk management.'
Using the 'file system' column of the upper pane of this window, you can easily check what file system each of your logical drives is using. Make a note of this information.
Now open a command prompt window by going to 'start\run' and typing 'cmd'
To convert a disk to NTFS, type 'convert (drive letter): /fs:ntfs'
So for example, if you were going to convert your C: drive, you would type 'Convert c: /fs:ntfs' at the prompt.") Anyone know of any other way?

If you have opened disk management, your portable drive will show up in there, just right click the drive then from the drop down box click format then select NTFS and click OK.
