iTunes Library Advice
Hardware i have :
Macbook Pro 13.3 i7 2.9Ghz 16Gb Mem 256Gb SSD (Running Mountain Lion 10.8.2)
1 x Time Capsule 1Tb
1 x Airport Express attached to SKY Router
1 x Airport Extreme
1 x Apple TV 3rd Generation
1 x iPad 3rd Gen
1 x iPhone 5
All using 5Ghz (n) Wireless Technology
1 x LaCie 1Tb Externtal Hard Drive (Formatted in MAC OS Extended (Journaled) Main iTunes Library)
The Idea :
I was hoping to use the LaCie external drive which has my Movie Library and using it as a network drive.
I also own a HP DC7900 with only a 160Gb Intel 2 Core Duo 2Ghz with thinking do i install basic windows XP with iTunes 10.7 and attaching the LaCie to the this machine and networking my library.
1st thing i know which will be a problem is the way the drive is formatted i'm going to have to move the library across to a temp drive then format the drive in to a 32bit FAT drive.
Once i've done this move the library back again to the LaCie Drive and then share iTunes across the Network
But will this work ??

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)

What would be your recommendation ?
Changing the file system ? if so to what ?
All movies are no bigger than on average 1.4Gb each or less

I just tried the LaCie directly from Airport Extreme very slow and hangs maybe the spare PC attaching the LaCie drive ??
