I am a film student and have access to Lacie 160GB external firewire hard drive. Our school's computers are MAC and use Final Cut Pro 4. I have a Dell Dimension 8300 w/ win XP and am currently using Adobe Premier Pro and will be purchasing Avid Express Pro. My problem is when I connect the hard drive to my computer, I am prompted to format in NFTS. The manufacturer reccommends using FAT 32 formant for use on both computers. HOw do I change the format setting or can I have two different partitions and no interference? Also, this is not my hard drive, it's the school's.
