Can someone confirm that I’m reading the right information from a bunch of previous posts?
We bought a My Book Studio for a student to complete a video project. He used it with a mac, and gave it back to me with all the files on it. However, our department is almost exclusively pc’s. I would like to watch and use the videos, and would like to back up the files to our server. It sounds like the only way I can do this is by finding someone in the department with a mac. It also sounds like my safest bet is going to be to keep the drive formatted as it is, for mac, and not even consider using it with a pc (or back and forth). We may have someone else use the files for another project in the future and it would most likely be using final cut on a mac, so we’re better off leaving things as is.
Does this sound right?
I guess I’m vaguely annoyed that we spent a fair amount of money for something I can’t use with my own computer, and that has quite a bit of space left on it that I could have used for backing up other things. Any suggestions for ways to work around this? Or do I just need to strike up a friendship with someone who uses a mac and is out of the office now and then?
