How to transfer files from a Mac formatted drive to Windows
on Dec 10, 2013 at 12:15:16 am

I have a portable hard drive formatted as: Mac OS Extended (journaled), with .mov files that were recorded on XDCAM EX HD and imported through Sony's Video Transfer. My client has a Windows based computer and can not get the files to transfer from my Mac formatted portable hard drive to their Windows computer. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Someone's going to have to buy MacDrive for that windows box. It's about fifty bucks. Once installed, it's a dream.... drives whose contents were previously unavailable are there. Use a Windows machine to do Mac formatting, if you like!

The only possible problems are in file name lengths. So if you don't call a file TheOriginalHubbaBubbaDoppelganger.mov or something equally weird, you should be okay.
