FAT32 volumes can go missing or corrupt on USB 2.0 or even firewire. Be sure you don't count on them to stick around. The sad news is that if you must interchange said drive, FAT32 is the only way today. But you won't see me relying on it to stick around.
I am in the market for a big external hard drive to back up my Macbook Pro (15.4", 2 GHz Intel Core Duo, OS X 10.4.8) as well as provide extra storage for music and video files. I'm hoping for a drive that is PC-compatible also since I use Boot Camp on my MBP.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
