    CDs/DVDs don't use the ntfs file system.


    What errors do you get trying to format?

    Floppies don't format in NTFS either.

    Nor do floopies for that matter.

    is it just fat?
    I remember there being a dropdown in XP with fat but can't remember if they had ntfs on the list...
    Been so long since i formatted a floppy.

    it freezes up the computer.. A drive.does.
    even trying to open floppies with data on them

    error said something like ms cannot complete format.

    and properties show RAW not FAT [ i believe you guys are saying and r right about] seen some talk about it happening to partioned hhd's of a certain size.
    The stories I've read shows a big problem when this happens
