I have a fujitsu handy drive 40GB which is mac, linux and windows compatible the problem is that the hard drive has been formatted in NTFS which OSX (I'm using Tiger) will read but not write, I've tried to formatting it with disk utility to MS DOS filing system but Disk utility says it cannot mount disk or it gets stuck on pin wheel. I've tried formatting it in windows but xp wont format anything over 32GB to Fat32 its NTFS or nothing. Does anyone know a way to get round this maybe third party software for mac or windows as my Powerbook Hard drive is almost full and I need to back up my work.
