Re: Some simple Mac questions

Generally with a Mac, you just ignore whatever software is shipped with the drive, and use the Disk Utility to reformat it as HFS+ [the most popular Mac native file system].

NTFS [and it's predecessor HPFS] are Microsoft proprietary formats, and are not official document in any public source [unlike the myriad of formats that Mac OSX can treat as native formats - all of them are well specified, with open source implementations].

I don't have any Windows machines at home, so this is not an issue for me. If I need to share stuff between one of my computers and a Windows box I use one of several methods already discussed in this thread.
