    Got a slight problem transferring files from my Macbook Pro to my portable hard drive. My portable hard drive is partitioned into NTFS and FAT 32

    The files are over 4gb big so ultimately I cant copy it to the FAT 32 partion and NTFS doesnt seem to work with mac books

    Any solutions? Thanks

    FAT32
    • Read/Write FAT32 from both native Windows and native Mac OS X.
    • No individual file larger than 4GB.
    NTFS
    HFS
    • Read/Write HFS from native Mac OS X
    • To Read/Write HFS from Windows, Install MacDrive
    • To Read HFS (but not Write) from Windows, Install HFSExplorer
