I am trying to change a new hard drive from FAT32 to NTFS but cmd is asking for the correct volume lable so where do I find this or what do I type in please

Just press Return, that will set a default Volume Label.

Type in VOL C: where C is the drive you are converting and the correct volume label will be shown.

The volume label is user specified - you can type in whatever you want, that will help you identify the drive.

Or as MAJ says, type in nothing and it will call it "Local Disk".

Or if you are needing to confirm the Volume Label for the program to continue - Open My Computer, and in the right-hand panel. under Hard Drives, it will show the Volume Label so

MAIN (C:) - where MAIN (or whatever) is the Volume Label.

Open My Computer

Right Click on the appropriate drive and select Properties

In the top box type in a new Volume Label (keep it simple).

Press OK

Then go back to your converter and use the new Volume Label you've just typed in.

What does it show if you type in 'dir' (without the quotes) and press enter from the cmd box?

Going to my computer and properties of the drive didnt work and I get the directories of c drive when I type dir in. I think I am in the wrong drive I should be in the I drive so how do I change cmd to the I drive

Type in the drive letter followed by a colon e.g. i: and press enter.

"Going to my computer and properties of the drive didnt work"

What do you mean? - what happened? It's supposed to work and is a very basic standard method to view and change Volume Labels.

Click on RUN. Type label. Click OK. Type any name you like E.G. Ambasedor. Press enter. That is now your HDD Vol Label
