    Ok, I have a 200gb external hdd that I want to be able to transfer more than 4gb at a time and want windows to pick up.

    But my problem is that if I set it to ms-dos (fat) it doesnt let me transfer over 4gb of files and gives me an error but it picks up the hdd in windows... other than that if I just use regular mac os extended journaled then it lets me transfer as much as I want (in osx) but windows wont pick up the hdd... this is driving me crazy~~!! Anyone know how to set it up to solve my problem!!

    HFSExplorer gives you read only support of HFS+ drives. MacDrive gives you write and formatting support but you have to pay for it.
