Well sorry iwol
I do not know the answer to the question but it will depend upon the basic input output system. In the menu you should have a section for formatting the drive the help functions in there may answer your question

I don't think it's possible. Have a butchers on avforums and see if someone's tried it?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Why not try it if you have the spare drive, and if it doesn't work, change it back to the old one ?

Let us know the results.
