    Some fast help please, external drive from my Mac to a clients DELL
    I need to deliver about 25 gig of images to a client and would like to give them it on an external HD like I usually do but they use Windows/Dell and needed to know if I need to prepare the drive a certain way so they can read the data (TIFF's and JPG's in folders) if I do need to do something special can it be done with the disk utility in OS 10.4.9

    thank you

    Yes, the drive needs to be formatted as MS-DOS. Open Disk Utility, click the drive, click the Erase tab and choose MS-DOS from the Volume Format drop down.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
