Hey I've been working with some guys that have a PC based studio and I am using a powerbook. I like to do preproduction on my mac and then i would like to be able to load all my session files, audio files, etc. on my lacie external hd but the pc cant open it. I could get media four's mac drive and install it on the pc but I dont really feel like buying that just for their computer cause that doesnt solve my problem for in the future. What can i do so that i can use my drive with pcs and macs in the future as well?

You can try a program called SharePoints. It enables you to share any firewire drive connected to your Mac. So basically you take your MacBook & external to the studio, connect to their pc based system via ethernet and add your mac network connection via the pc! Good Luck if you have any questions send me a email.

[edit LPM: please NO plain email in forums, it's giving it freely to spammers, we're googlable, hence spambotable. Use the SAFE link on each member's card, next to the post on the left]

I strongly advise you not to WORK on a PC formatted drive from the mac, now, to transfert files it'll be ok provided you use either macdrive, or, for NTFS : MacFuse from Googlecode (it's free)
