    Hey,

    I have just got a 16GB usb flash drive and would like to be able to use it on windows and mac -- before anyone shouts "just use FAT", I can't, I need to store files larger than 4GB.

    Does anyone have ideas?

    The cheaper alternative would be to format using NTFS.
    Then get macfuse +NTFS3G for free..

    Though it is not the fastest......

    That's fine for home use, but I'm a university student and can't install that on the campus computers.

    Which filesystem can you read and write to on a campus computer then? Just make your home machine compatible with it then.
