    When you boot up GParted, you'll have your GUI.
    Your internal disk will be labeled /dev/sdax, x being a 1 or 2.

    But the external, provided you have it connected to your computer, will be labeled /dev/sdb1.
    That's the one to deal with.

    Chances are that the reason your device thinks the drive is NTFS
    is that its partition ID in the partition table still says NTFS.
    This can be changed by connecting the drive to a Linux computer
    and changing it with fdisk. Actually, just about any partitioning
    software can change the ID flag.
