Then you can access files on the Mac disk just like you would with a Windows formatted disk. greetz What he said ... FAT 32 is cool n al...

This studio has a pretty impressive reputation in the electronic community for having a pretty distinctive sound. On records such as 'phylips trax' or the 'burial mix' series, how much of the ...
