Going between Mac and PC for sound editing... Help with External HDD
HDD, Glyph GT050 professional, 160GB HDD.
So.. Yesterday in class we were doing our Digital Audio Workstations lab.. first thing we were doing was called "Writing zero's to the drives". He said most of us have never heard this term, basically it formats the drive but it seems to make it a Mac Drive... He says after formatting it, we will no longer be able to go back and forth from a PC...
Since its a 100% mac school, they suggest it... But because not everybody there has a mac (Its about 50/50) they don't have us Actually do it, they walk us through to the last step and show us how to finish it at home. This was the last thing discussed before class ended and another class came in, I couldn't really ask so I didn't bother
My friend goes between Mac and PC a lot, he said if I don't do anything to the drive (use it right out of the box, no formatting) it will work just fine for both. And what we were doing was "probably" optimizing the hdd for mac.
So my question is what do I do ?
<-- Mac user now.
