    Hi, I am using a Macbook pro - Safari v. 5. 1. 10
    I want to load down a zip file (Global) from the internet.
    Then unzip the file, rename, and put it on a USB flash drive,
    Then connect it to a PC , Windows 7.
    Will this work ? can I interchange zip files Mac - PC and vice versa ?

    Why not put the zip file on the PC before unzipping and renaming?

    Yes to both questions.
    (Assuming your USB stick is formatted in such a way that makes it readable by OS X and Windows)

    New USB stick formatted to Fat 32, would that work?

    ----------

    Thats not possible, its part of my problem, my PC Downloads has a problem.
    Downloads don't finish downloading or only partial download.
