I recently switched. it's like escaping the matrix Anyway, I have an external usb drive that i used for my pc. i can copy things from it to my mac, but i cannot change anything on the drive itself, i.e. i can't delete anything off it, add anything to it, etc. I have te data on it backed up and i want to use m pc to format it. However, XP will only let me reformat in NTFS, and I've heard that you have to have it formatted for FAT32 in order for it to be totally compatible with macs. Is this right, and if so, does anyone know a way that I can format to FAT32 using XP? Thanks all!
