I just bought a new 500Gig LaCie HDD and I want to be able to use it on Both Macs and Windows computers. Mostly I have Macs (iMac / MBP / MB), but I do have to transfer content back and forth from a PC also, quite a bit.. I have read about MacFuse and NTFS-3G and stuff, but it's only confused me more.. If this is a good choice to go for, can some one please explain to me in easy words, on how this works? Will I need to install MacFuse and NTFS-3g on all Macs, for me to be able to read and write on NTFS partition? If so, should I format this drive on a Mac or PC? I wouldnt mind having 2 partitions, as long as I am able to read and write on both the partitions from my iMac (I use Mac OS X ver-10.4.11, on all Macs at the moment) Your help would be appreciated. And sorry if this has been posted b4 a million times, but I searched to get all really weird results... Thus the last resort!
