Full Version: Fat32 Or Osxtended

Just bought a powerbook and I have all my PC files on an external western digital hard drive. I want my computer optimised mainly for audio so I was wondering whether I should reformat the external drive to the native mac format or keep the FAT32 (gaining PC compatibility I suppose).

you could keep it pc format, try and see how many tracks you can play back or record to it at one time with the pc format, if it gives a useable amount then why bother re-formatting.
- do you really need the compatibility?

- FAT32 won't be bootable (you'll have to reformat it in HFS(+) if you want to install a MAC OS system)

else it should work cool.gif
