I have a problem with an external harddrive. I want to configurate this that I can read and write with a Mac OSX and Win 98, 2000, NT, XP etc. If I set it on the format fat 32 the problem is that a file can't be larger than 4GB and because I'm working a lot with video and animation that is far too small. So in how have I to format my external harddrive so that I can read and write files with more than 4 GB from Mac and PC ???

Cheers Speedy
