Fat32 Reader For Mac

Format FAT32 on Mac Terminal Command Line The command-line behavior does the same way to erase data with the Disk Utility. Again, create a backup before taking this action. To format FAT32 on Mac with Terminal, follow the next steps: Step 1. Connect the USB flash drive to your Mac computer.

When I connect one of my NTFS external drives to my MacBook Air (brand new one that I bought last week), it doesn't get mounted. When I checked Disk Utility, I saw that it was listed as a FAT12 drive (not even FAT32; but FAT12)!
All other NTFS drives are mounted as read-only drives without problems. I also downloaded Paragon NTFS for Mac to see if that would change anything, but it didn't.
This drive works with zero problems when I connect it to my Win10 computers.
Can anyone help me make my Mac read the drive?
Thanks in advance.

  2. If the drive is for sharing - then Fat32 is the way to go. If you only plan to use it on a mac - use HFS+ (native to Macs). If you plan to use it for Time Machine, use HFS+. If you plan to share, and need to store really large files (e.g. Videos 2GB), then use NTFS.
