I think that it is supposed to be FAT32, but, Windows7 will not open it. Is there another formatting option?

  • Can you be more specific in what you're trying to do? I'm confused by what you're trying to ask :/

You can also use NTFS, it's a wiser solution for an external disk on most cases. But Windows 7 should be able to read FAT partitions right, usually usb sticks are just formated in FAT. It's quite strange that you are seeing this issue.
