    OK, I read about formatting Fat 32 to transfer files. I will try it tomorrow. My other question has to do with using this for backup. it is a 750 hard drive and I was wondering if I should do anything special if I want to use it for both Timeline and video storage separate from timeline.

    You can use it for timemachine, but it will reformat it other than Fat32. While time machine uses it you can store other files on it, but time machine will fill it up unless you partition it.
