    The suggestions above will do the trivk for you. However make sure to vbackup the contents of the drive somewhere beforehand.

    Hello, there shouldn't be a problem with it.  You can also use the convert command if you do not want to format it.

    convert *: /fs:ntfs

    connect the card with a card reader (or card reader slot if available)
    right click >>format>>select ntfs.

    i prefer fat format, is is faster and more compatible.
    but if you have any particular purpose, you can use ntfs and have an option return to fat/fat32 by the same method.
