    i was wondering what the deal is with usb portable data storage sticks....

    i plan on doing uni work on mac using pages, saving it onto usb memory stick, pluging into a windows xp (dont think there vista) and viewing it and printing it.

    apart from the obvious of having to save the document as a .doc and not .pages is there anything else i need to do?

    will it work just fine like this and allow me to edit and save on both machines?


    thanks

    As long as the stick is formated in FAT32, you should be OK.

    Yeah. Sorry about that. My daughter was asking me a question at the same time so you got put to the end of the queue. ;)

    and don't use DOS-illegal filenames. Stick to - and _ as the only punctuation. Make sure the file has the three letter extension (.doc, .pdf, whatever) as appropriate to the target program.
