Re: Hardrive help!!!!!! Got my Hardrive - but cant make it a basic volume!
yeah you have to format. macs don't work with NTFS! you can share windows drives through a network but won't be able to write to them. if you want to write to them, you must format them to make them a format apple will see. if you have files on them already, which you don't, it goes without saying that you need to move them off first, then format the drive, then move them back. good luck. i too was thinking of getting an imac down the road as $$ permits. how is that working out for you and why did you make the switch. i have seen it in action and is a much more stable OS for heavy HD video editing and audio production, even though my pc's are pretty good at it now...but in a nutshell, better for complex file formats i require.
