Best way to format a External HDD for Mac and PC use ? Okay this is a slightly complex thingy here, but here goes. I'm getting (in the post) a 250gb Maxtor HDD External for use with University computers (doing a lot of Video editing and downloading of stuff with the 1gig per sec internet connection or something) anyway I want to format it so it can be used by both mac and PCs. My mate say FAT is a no go, and I thought it could only be used with drives up to the size of like 32Gb, anyway through I maybe wrong and that might just be Windows 95/98. My friends suggest the use of http://www.dataviz.com/products/macopener/index.html which I have brought and installed, but I was wondering has anyone else had any kind of similar problems with doing the same thing and how they fixed it.
