Go to command prompt (Start>Run, then enter cmd in the prompt and press enter)
Type Format X: /FS:FAT32 [Enter] (where X is the drive letter of your hard-disk)
There'll then be a warning saying all data will be erased if you continue. Press y [Enter] to continue.
It'll take a few minutes depending on the size of the drive.
See if you can now access your drive in windows explorer. If not, you may need to use a program called formatfat32 (I had to when I formatted mine).
Unzip to the C: drive and in Command Prompt type
CD\ [Enter] (to navigate to the C: root)
FormatFat32.exe X: [Enter] (again where X is your hard-drive letter).
This should only take a few seconds, but after that my drive was accessible from both my PC and PS3.
