I have an iMac 2GHz Intel on MacOS 10.6.8. I am thrilled with my WD 750GB passport. This is my fourth WD drive.
It is formatted for MacOS and holds media: iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie. I want to back it up with an external blue-ray burner. There are relatively cheap external blu-ray burners for PC, but not Mac.
What is the best format for the passport? If I stick with MacOS format, I can mount the drive to a PC, but the files will not be visbile to the PC. Therefore the MacOS formatted drive and fiels are invisible to the external blu-ray drive. Correct?
If I reformat the drive with the MSDOS FAT format both PC and Mac will see the files and I can mount back and forth. BUT… Is the MSDOS FAT format the poor choice to store the media from my MacOS applications?
All help is appreciated!
