Hi everyone, I just ordered my first Mac, switching from a Dell Inspiron 1720 to a 17" MBP, and really looking forward to the switch. One big question, and in searching through the forums I see there are some ways to do it so I'm not too worried. Currently, I have a 750GB Seagate external hard drive that holds a lot of raw DVI files that I ripped in from an old Digital 8mm video camera. 20 or so 1-hour video files, each is about 12GB in size due to the raw video. Now, since I'm currently using Vista, that external drive is NTFS. Ultimately, I would think that I'd want to convert that external drive to the Mac file format. I have enough other drive space in the house on other Windows machines (wife and kids systems and another older external USB drive) that I can move the files off the Seagate drive, reformat it, and transfer the files back I think, but am I really going to be able to get 12GB NTFS files over to the Mac or should I spend time while I'm waiting for the MBP (2-3 weeks due to the high-res screen) splitting each of those big files into more manageable pieces (say, 15 minutes at 4GB a pop)? I really hate to do any video editing at all on my current Dell system, it's a frakkin pig. I see the other 3rd party software out there that basically mounts NTFS drives on Mac systems, but it looks like transfer speeds are affected so it sounds like an Apple-native file system would make more sense. Just not sure how to go about managing these huge files over to the new Mac.
