Ok, so I'm a smart kid. 19 years old and in my freshmen year as a CS major here in the States. Today though I made a foolish mistake. I needed to turn some digital pictures into the school paper, and instead of burning a CD, I just loaded them onto my iPod mini knowing full well that I have a Mac, and the Editors use a Windows machine. So of course when I have the senior editor plug my iPod mini into the windows machine it recognizes it, but can't read it, and offers to initialize it. Why oh Why did I think this would work? I know that hard drives are formated one way or the other, but for some reason I thought there was a way to pull files off a disc that were cross platform files, like JPEGs. Is this not true? What about when I burn Cross platform CDs? do CDs work differently, or does Toast really burn the images twice, once in a MacOS friendly environment, and yet again in a Windows readable way? I'm Curious... -Tyler Z.
