    If it's formatted as NTFS you'll need 3G NTFS or look in the forum for directions on native ntfs support on 10.6

    I'd make sure its formatted FAT32. Screw NTFS in an uncomfortable place. My externals are FAT32 and go from windows to mac just fine.

    Kinda screwed if you have a file over 4GB though.
