Ah, technology ...

So, after (still) failing to view XviD videos on rwrylsin's Mac, our next episode involves an external USB hard drive. We want to have one partition formatted Mac-style, and one formatted for Windows, so we can each back up our files. Unfortunately, neither system seems to be able to recognise the partitions set up by the other, and attempting to create partitions on either system destroys any existing partitions that were present. Argh !

(note that neither of us is trying to boot from the drive, which would force it to only contain one paritition (at least for Windows, possibly also Mac) - we just want it to appear on each computer as a standard external USB drive, and copy stuff to/from it)
