    Please be more specific.
    In Explorer, rightclick the drive where Milennium is on, select Properties. What fileformat do you see (FAT16/FAT32/NTFS)?
    Do the same for the other drive, what do you see there?

    Your ME is probably FAT32 already, so does not need to be converted.

    ME won't read NTFS. There is no reason ME shouldn't be able to access the files on the drive if its FAT or FAT32 format. If the drive in question is NTFS or anything else, you won't be able to read it in ME (at least not without some additional software to read it).
