Users of Mac OS X Snow Leopard may experience a problem related to copying directories to Windows-formatted volumes in Finder. The problem stems from the “dot-underscore” companion files that Mac OS X’s HFS+ filesystem creates for files when they get moved to FAT16 or FAT32 volumes.
The problem remains. I’m trying to transfer a .mov file made in Final Cut (so let’s leave Microsoft alone in this case). The external drive I’m trying to copy from is formatted MacOS Extended (journaled), so no FAT32 issue.
Sounds good! OS X has a temperamental relationship with FAT32 format drives. If you need a large drive to share between a mac and PC in future you can also just format it as NTFS then use Mac Fuse to let the Mac read and write to it.
