I have a 250 iomega external HDD that when i boot it up in my windows 7 OS it asks me to format and it doesn't allow me to format in NTFS, only exFAT? And when i boot up the HDD in windows xp it asks me to format again but doesn't allow me to format at all. why is this happening? and many thanks in advance.....

have you downloaded windows service packs?
also right click on the drive and run error checking tool maybe that will let you format the drive
