    Hi

    I'm waiting for my first Mac computer : a Powerbook.
    Meanwhile I bought a Lacie D2 Extreme 250 gb external drive. I formated it in Windows XP as NTFS. Made a backup of the files to copy to the Powerbook.
    Will the Powerbook recognize the NTFS Windows formated drive ?
    If not, what alternatives do I have ?

    Thank you.
