If you still want to use FAT32 you can format your drive in Linux. The 32GB Limitation Windows has is only there to force people to use NTFS. Linux allows you to use FAT32 up to 2TB. Once it is formatted Windows can handle the drive aswell and of course the 360. Only problem with this method is that a single file can not be bigger than 4GB. That's why I recommended HFS+. No filesize limit and the 360 knows the format.

the xbox cannot read a second, third or fourth (and so on) partition from an external device.
partition magic cannot format a drive to HFS+. HFS+ is a macintosh HDD format, and must be formatted using either a mac, or the windows application MacDrive

The purpose of a partition is to make the drive usable. the HDD has to be partitioned or else where would a pc seek for the partition boot sector, know what filesystem to use etc. Your PC can't do a thing without a partitiontable and that's true for the 360 too. In short no HDD works without a partition.
You can try to merge them and the 360 might handle it just fine but there's still the filesize limit. I mean 4GB for a movie isn't to much these days.
Where's the problem in downloading MacDrive and formatting the drive with HFS+?

The settings were:
.select partition tab under the usb hdd
.select '1 Partition' under volume scheme
.give it a meaningful name like 'media'
.under format menu select 'Mac OS Extended'
.under options button select 'Apple Partition Map'
Now copy some media to test on the xbox 360.
all should work.
This is not to go against the excellent guides done by the Windows guys. BOTH METHODS WORK WELL.
