here's the long story: I'm a professional photographer that has just made the leap over to mac this week.

Here is the problem: I have a existing gigabit network system which utilises two 2Tb Western digital My World II (Raid 1 network drives) which is my working photo storage.

The network was run by PC's using XP and Vista. I now have two new iMacs which replace two pc's. But here is the catch, I still have a powerful laptop which I need to use on the network.

I would like to re-formatt the drives to use Apple's HFS file system, but now how do I get access to files and sharing with my Windows based laptop?????

Help please, I live in a small town in Africa and there is just about no experienced help with mac for at least 200 miles.

QUOTE Thanks
