Mac and PC - enormous file transfer
I have negligible experience with a Mac. A friend runs a business which involves editing large video files. She uses a Windows workstation but needed to transfer two large files (13GB and 15GB) to someone else who uses a Mac. I realised that an external HD formatted with FAT32 wouldn't work with such large files and, in my naivety, I assumed that we could use an NTFS formatted external HD. Unfortunately, that didn't work.
I've done some reading and it seems that Macs don't play nicely with NTFS. I've thought about configuring shared folders on the Mac and Windows PC then connecting them directly so that files can be transferred directly between the devices, but that would require her to ensure that the correct IP addresses have been configured, she's using the correct cable and the file/folder permissions are all OK (I hasten to add that she's not particularly "into" IT so I want to make it as painless as possible for her!).
Does anyone have any other suggestions? Ideally, we'd like to have an external HD in an enclosure that can be used to transfer files between the Mac and PC.
