    The base OS for Ricoh copier is a modified Linux so I would say ext3.

    There's no need to pre-format the drives

    I uncounted an SC899 issue last week I only had with me a used old 320GB drive I pulled from a Canon but I formatted it to FAT32 in Windows fitted it to an MP 301 once powered on it prompted me to format once I did that & rebooted it worked fine.
