    Is there a possibility to format an external USB harddrive in order to support larger files than 4 GB, and keep its compatibility with Mac OS X and Windows Vista?

    FAT 32 doesn't work because it's limited to file sizes below 4 GB, and NTFS isn't supported by Mac OS X!?

    I need to share an external HD for film editing (huge files!!!).

    Any help?

    Thanks. :eek:

    I think the only solution is to install MacFUSE so you can read and write to NTFS from your mac.

    Or install MacDrive on the PC to enable it to read/write HFS...
