NTFS Hard Drive compatible with Mac Pro Tools system?
on Apr 13, 2006 at 6:50:58 pm

I have a G-Tech 250 GB drive, NTFS formatted so that I could use it with my PC Avid system. I have large files on it that I'd like to transfer onto a G5 Mac Pro Tools (6.1 i think) that I have access to. If i hooked up my HD through Firewire, would it safely connect to the Mac? Any chance of it somehow corrupting my hard drive?

Hi
NTFS drives (or at least mine were) are ok, however you may get an issue about the length of the name of the drive. mine was called "video and audio media" and had to be shortened.
Also be aware that if you export some files (mp3 included then there is a character limit of 32. If you exceed this then exporting an mpe from Digidesign will resutl in a massively longer file (about 1.5 mins of silence after a 30 second cue.

Should be good to go though.
Peter
