OK, so I bought a Maxtor 200gig drive from Best Buy a few hours ago. It came with a manual and a CD and all that crap which I kind of threw over there in the box and didn't mess with much. I just plugged it in. So, there sits my 189 out of 200 gig (I guess 200 gig was the precooked weight) and I can dump stuff on it just fine, but every so often, it runs into a file it doesn't like, such as when a folder has a custom icon. The copy quits on it. So, this is because it's formatted for a PC, right? And some of the files confuse the PC filesystem or something, with their extended character sets and such. I suppose I could format it natively for the Mac, but then I couldn't go over to my PC buddy's houses and be able to use it, right? So, my tradeoff is: be able to use with PCs, but loose being able to put custom icons on folders? Is that pretty much it? Are there speed issues I should be scared of?
