Sorry to be a L-User guys. Bought this 40GB external HDD to be a sort of portable thingy for editing files on either OS. Formatted it under DOS for FAT32 so both XP and OSX could recognise it but my Powerbook doesn't even recognise it is plugged in, even after going to the manufacturers website and downloading and installing the software.

What am I doing wrong? I know... using windows still... and not just investing in an I-Pod... but what else am I doing wrong. :(

I can't help as I used the same formatting and everything worked fine.

But separating myself from M$ entirely, I use OSX's formatting and other computers use linux anyway.
