    I picked up a 1tb WD with firewire for pretty cheap the other day ($119) from BB and I just recently got into newsgroups. Anyway, I'm trying to get the HD rips I have onto the HD and I can't. I've read somewhere that I have to reformat the external because Fat32 and NTSC won't allow mac to move more than 4gb at one time. Anyone run into this problem as well and what did you do? If I have to reformat so be it. I only ran time machine on it and backed up my music from my pc so moving it around isn't a big deal.
