I am switching completely from mac to windows.
The backup drives I have are 3tb My Book’s for mac. Does this mean that they cannot be converted to windows?
Every time I go to Disk Utility and erase, the only (non MAC) option I have is “exFAT”. But when I choose exFAT, it gives me an error message.
I don’t necessarily need this backup disk to work on MAC any longer. Just windows.
I am using VMWare fusion to access windows for the moment on a macbook pro (OS X version 10.9.1). I am preparing to move to a windows laptop (with Windows 8) that will be arriving later this month. Should I just wait until I get the new laptop and attempt to reformat the drive on it?
When I attempt to connect the hd to the windows side using Fusion, it tells me “USB Device not recognized”. Can I still initialize it on the windows side somehow?
