Unsupported File System

I store my iTunes library on a Seagate 1TB external drive. When I attempt to add the location within Library Settings within the Sonos desktop controller app I get the following message:

Shared Folder Not Added
The shared folder on the drive can’t be added, because it is formatted using an unsupported file system.
In this version of OS X, Sonos can only share folder on external drives formatted using the HFS+ file system.

Can anyone provide advice / assistance on how to get around or fix this?
