Which is the best format?
I'm trying to decide which is the best format to reformat an external hard drive in order to be able to use it both with a Mac and a Windows machine as well as with some TV sets. Which format do you recommend? what are the general advantages/disadvantages of those formats?
I'm currently trying FAT32 but I'm hating the 4GB limit it imposes to each individual file that I want to copy...

Format A Hard Drive Using Disk Utility (which is in your /Applications/Utilities folder)
Choose the appropriate format:
HFS+ (Hierarchical File System, a.k.a. Mac OS Extended (Journaled) Don't use case-sensitive)
NTFS (Windows NT File System)
FAT32 (File Allocation Table)
