    1 Tb means 1 Tb - maybe less

    I formatted my 2T hard drive as 2 equal partitions using the Mac disk utility. I tried both FAT and exFAT. FAT took a long time to mount and the tablet was exiting apps, but it did mount. But when I copied my 4G music folder, it stopped after about 256 M with the disk "disconnected". When I tried exFAT it mounted faster and without the hiccups but the same thing happened - after about 250Mb, it disconnected (device does not exist or somesuch message).

    exFAT/NTFS also failed.

    As I do not use a Mac, I will hope some else can assist you. However, should you have a Windows installation / emulator / partition installed then you might be able to use this?

    This was a hard drive. I have windows but it doesn't want to do FAT for large partitions. I also have Linux and gparted which can do most things other than exFAT

    To format a larger volume as FAT32 in Windows, you need to ... well, you need to get out of Windows. I forgot when (I think it was XP or Vista), Windows stopped letting you format
    Use GParted or you could use a Windows ME boot disk, if your BIOS will mount USB drives so DOS can see them. IMO the GParted way is easiest as its windowed Linux UI is more comfortable than DOS for most folks.

    Just make sure you've selected the correct device, create the partition, and format it.

    Hmm, Google gave me this... Ridgecrop Consultants Ltd
    Looks pretty good, though I've never used it myself.

    I had this issue when I was trying to format my 1TB external to hook up to my PS3. This video helped and might also help you in your situation.
