I edit video on a powerMac using FCP but when I take the footage to the client on an external hard drive, their PC, does not recognize my Mac-formated hard drive. Is there any way around this? My only solution has been to burn a DVD which is time consuming. Any ideas? Thanks.

powerMac G5, Mac OS X (10.4.7)

[Macdrive|http://mediafour.com/products/macdrive> allows Mac-formatted drives to be read by PCs. However it would not fix any codec-related issues.

Not all PC formatted drives. Only FAT-32 Drives have a 4GB size limit. You can read and write to NTFS-formatted drives in OS X if you install NTFS-3G http://macntfs-3g.blogspot.com/ but I would not advise using an NTFS drive as a media drive in FCP, only for transfer.
