You will need to delete the NTFS partition and create a new partition in order to change the format to FAT32. Windows may not let you format it as a single FAT32 partition as Msoft likes to restrict FAT32 partitions to about 32gb maximum size.
Does your TV directly access the external drive via some kind of network connection or a USB, or will the external drive be attached to another PC for file serving purposes?
The external drive will connect direct to the TV via USB. The 1T Samsung exteral drive is new and I formatted it to NTFS before loading a couple of movies and testing it, the TV would not read it. My friend also bought a Samsung 1T drive and didn't format it before loading movies and it works fine. It is in FAT32 format, hence my reason to reformat back to Fat32.
