    .

    I am getting ready to do the same thing. I believe that you have to buy one (external hard drive) formatted for a Mac or format it yourself.

    I have not done it, but will be doing it soon. The computer wizard that I know said that it took 10 minutes and was easy.

    Switched over to Macs several years ago and will never go back.

    E-mailed a IT guy, his reply

    "My guess is to use disk utilities on the Mac and format it as FAT."

    Yes in order switch back and forth between mac and PC you have to format to FAT32, same for ps3. Instead of trying to drag and drop jot of iPhoto, try the regular folder maybe that the pics are stored in? I don't know just a thought.

    If you format it as FAT32, you will only be able to use roughly 4GB
