Reminder: (The OP is MattTuck).
I've lost track of who you are addressing.
We haven't heard from the OP in EONs so I don't know what's up.

It's been 26 hours. I don't blink that fast.

I find it harder to express logic in English than in Code.
Sometimes an example says more than many times as many words.

I use Reply# count: We are up to 16 with no response from the OP. Who doesn't check their email on a Saturday ?
Maybe he didn't turn on Notify .
When I first read the post the first question that came to mind is "Whose hard drive does he want to access wirelessly and does he mean with or without their knowledge ?"
The second question was "Ok , if it's his hard drive , WHY does he need to access it and EXACTLY WHAT does he need to do in terms of file transfer ? (WHAT file types and sizes ?) (what distance range?) (What data transfer speed ?)

Believe it or not, you can format a drive however you like and use it on most PC operating systems.

I know that.

Why would you bother to format it with an out of date system just so you could read it with an Arduino ???

He didn't say why.

Maybe wants to sort data and doesn't know about indexing. Or something totally different.

You can pick up smaller refurb drives for a song if you shop around.
But then you can pick up enough to run them on cheap too.

Some of what makes AVR and SD go so well are similar size and low power requirements.

If the goal was to give the Arduino mahoosive persistent storage, that would make sense. But we seem to be putting more energy into speculating about the problem than the OP is putting into solving it.
