Currently Being ModeratedOct 24, 2008 12:48 PM (in response to .deiviuxs)How is your flash drive formatted? If it's NTFS, you can read it but you can't write to it on your Mac. In order to read and write in both Mac & pc, it needs to be formatted in Fat32. You can format it on your Mac or pc. -GDFWhite MacBook 2.0 Core Duo 2GB RAM 120GB HD / 16GB iPod Touch / iPod Hi-Fi, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 24, 2008 1:16 PM (in response to .deiviuxs)My flash drive is formated using NTFS and I formated it using this system because I can copy large files to my flash drive (ex. 8GB). I do not want to use FAT32 because then I could only copy files smaller than 4GB and I have some files that are larger than 4GB. That's why I bought a 16GB flash drive. Is it possible to use NTFS or FAT32 but be able to transfer larger files? Thanks!Macbook, Mac OS X (10.5.4), 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
