Question about LaCie Silverscreen 80GB USB 2.0 - Portable Multimedia (093053682095) Hard Drive
I just recently purchased a Lacie 250GB external hard drive, formatted it for use between PCs and MACS using the PC at my work and downloaded everything I have onto it just fine. Now I have given the hard drive to my friend with a MAC who was going to down load a bunch of his stuff onto it for me as well just before I leave the province tomorrow. Unfortunately his MAC can see the hard drive but cannot access it. When he switched over to his PC it doesn't even see the hard drive at all. Can you help me at all asap? What's going on? Thank you! Romey
Reformat the HDD, using ANY MAC and format it as FAT32. No file larger than 4GB will be permitted, but then you can share between Windows & MAC PCs

Be carefull when moving data from Macs to Windows etc. Your best bet would be to start again. It should work if you get your friend to put the data on the drive & copy it directly to your Mac. From there, you can safely copy data to the PC, but may have trouble accessing that same data after the PC has had it.
