    Here is my quandary:
    Running a MacBook with (of course) OSX 10.6.6 installed. Have 2 external mini drives (both 500GB). I have movies installed on one of them (almost a full disk).
    Now the question is: When I try to move them from my drive to a friends drive..no luck. I can move movies from HIS Fat32 formatted disk (running WIN7) to mine, but not mine to his.
    Is there anyway to make this happen??? I know I can reformat my drives to FAT32 and still use them on my Mac..but would rather not have to reformat both drives (to send all the movies from one to the other), but will if there is no other way.
    Thanks for the assistance.
