Okay, correct me if I'm wrong but why not use an external USB hard drive, let the windows computer format it using extFAT, then plug it into the mac and copy the files to it. I do this all the time. I capture live video using the mac and edit it for TV on a windows desktop.

I have both Windows 7 & 8 computers plus my Macbook Pro running OS X 10.8.5. I have also used USB flash drives formatted extFAT and it works fine.

I have had issues with letting the Macbook format USB flash drives first but none if I use the Windows computer.

I have read several post about transfer of files and I have seen the recommendations for Paragon but if extFAT works and removes the files size issues why not.

Here is info on extFAT:

Hope this helps
