    Ok so i pretty much made the switch to all MAC a few months ago. I have a few external drives that i use with Media players and they prefer and work better when formatted to NTFS problem is, MACs can only read and write to FAT32.

    I have Windows 7 on my macbook ( though my movie collection is on my iMac ) via bootcamp, so that isn't a option.

    I heard and read about some programs and what not.. but what is the fastest and easiest way to transfer files from my iMac to a NTFS formatted HD?

    I have movies ( some over 4gb in size ) on my iMac

    Any help would be great.

    Or if you have a Gigabit capable Windows PC, connect the HDD there and transfer the data via the LAN and Gigabit cable.
