Today I put a small folder of files from my Powerbook G4, copied them onto my 1GB Sandisk Cruzer Mini and drove to a friends house to attempt to install those files onto his PC. When I inserted the flash drive, Windows XP asked me if I'd like to format the disk. "Duh" I thought to myself. How could I have been so stupid as to not question the compatibility? I've never done this before since I've had a PBook (first Mac[ill never go back]) for 18 months and never needed to transfer data to anthing else. So in Disk Utility I see I can only format the drive for OSX or UNIX, and my question is, will it work with both OSX and Windows if it's formatted for UNIX? And a follow-up question would be is there any way to use a USB drive to transfer data from a Mac to a PC or PC to Mac? Thanks.
