Must have been too slow or you were typing at the same time harry. The only thumb drives I have not formatted Mac OS are the few I use for TV programs. For that I have used FAT32 in the past but I'm thinking of changing to ExFat because of the 4Gb file size limitation. A recent movie I was watching was over the 4Gb and stopped about 3/4 of the way through, then started again after a minute or so but the sound track was out of sync.I used to be conceited but now I'm perfect.

I was just commenting on this statement in post #11
2. All newer versions of OS and Windows recognize longer file names and will read either FAT32 or ExtFAT formatting.
And as to FAT32 formatting, doesn't that limit you as to the number of characters for a file or folder name?
