Most likely the firmware on the Flashpac which reads/writes the hard drive will not understand NTFS at all. Formatting the unit as NTFS may convert it into a doorstop until is is formatted back to a format it can understand. Also, some AV/digital photo devices have the software to run them installed on the hard disk. Formatting destroys this.
