I had also been directed to check out UDF, which is the filesystem used on
DVDs. I would need to see how Windows would handle a 160GB ISO/UDF.
All I want is a simple filesystem that is efficient _and_ portable.
Unfortunately, due to Windows' lack of filesystem support, it looks like
FAT32 is the choice if I can't get the Mac filesystem working (Windows has
support for this through a program called XDrive, used to give Windows
users direct access to the iPod harddrives ). But I'm not sure what
limitations there are for this filesystem. If anyone has any info or links,
please post them.
