I bought a Maxtor 250 GB External Hard Drive with two firewire ports. I want to be able to have 100 GB for my MAC and 150 for my PC. I have no idea how to do this. I tried to creat a partition of the 150 GB on my PC, but then when i plugged the Hard Drive into my MAC, it read the Hard Drive as the full 250 GB, so then i tried to partition the 100 GB on the mac, but it erased my PC partition. Then i tried to plug the Hard drive with the mac partition on it into my PC, but it didn't read the Hard Drive at all. I want to know if there is a way to have the 150GB on my PC and have the 100GB for my MAC!? I don't care if i have both partitions running at once, but i just want to store files from the PC and the MAC on the Hard drive.
Is there a way to do this!?
