    I purchased the 1.5 tb model in hopes to save all my movie collection. So far the drive has worked like a dream and the firewire 800 connection is a awesome. My question is this, When I go into the vista side it does not recognize the drive. Is there a way to make vista recognize it? or is this just a TRUE Mac hard drive? Thank you in advance.

    The only way for both os's to recognize it is with Fat32 unfortunately fat32 will no support large file sizes above 4gb i believe. so depending on your movie collection you may be able to use fat32 if not. you will have to find an application to read NTFS for mac.
