Here's the strangest thing I've come across in awhile:

We edited on AVID on the PC platform. We purchased 3 FantomHD Green Drives to deliver our tapeless files to the network. The drives come pre-formatted as NTFS and we checked that when we connected to our PC.

The original media files live on a Mac formatted drive (HFS+) and we used MEdiaFour to read these drives on our PC system. (We migrated from FCP to AVID --- don't ask!)

We copied the media from the HFS+ drives to the NTFS drives via PC and shipped them out. Now the network says we failed spec because the FantomHD drives are now reading as HFS+ drives.

Would the HFS+ file system re-format our NTFS drives or is the drive reading as HFS+ because all the media on that drive came from an HFS+ drive?

Very perplexed!

Are you sure the drives were n't cloned instead of just copied

Definitely not cloned. Clicked copy on folders in source (HFS+) drive and pasted to target (NTFS) drive. That's what is so perplexing.

Sometimes drives come with small partitions with useless software on them.
Is it possible this drive comes with a small HFS+ partition on it with utilities for Mac users on it?
