NTFS and HFS+ will give problems on MAC or PC respectively.
What 32 GB partition limit? Or is that a typo and did you mean 2 TB?
I had read in several places (maybe quite old forum threads) about FAT32 not being able to make partitions larger than 32GB.
Is that incorrect? Can I simply format any 2TB drive as FAT32 and it will work smoothly and efficiently with both Mac and PC?
I'd also read that FAT32 was "unstable". Is that not the case?
2. There's no problem with the 2GB file size limit for FAT32 because RED solved that problem.
I'm curious how?

Unstable is not the issue here. The artificial limitation that Win7 and Vista place on FAT32 volumes. The solution is either use an external Windows program to format volumes larger than 32 GB or format on a MAC. Win7 and Vista have no problem using volumes larger than 32 GB, they only are prohibited to format them.
Look here for some background: http://serverfault.com/questions/52640/how-to-format-as-fat32-from-windows-7-vista
Thanks, Harm, I'll read that.
Jim, I believe RED split the same clip into two files once it hits 2GB.
