I have a jump/thumb drive that I've used many times to transfer files from one PC to another. I recently plugged it into my MBP to see if I could access the pictures I had on it, and I could. Now my PC doesn't seem to like it any longer. Did I mess it up somehow? What's the best way to transfer large files or large numbers of files from a PC to my MBP? For a file or two, I can just email them to myself, but that's not practical for multiples.

Well generally if you are dealing with files that are smaller than 4GB then a storage device formatted as FAT32 would be ideal.

That way you can read and write on both OS.
