The only sensible option that pops to mind is using FAT32 disk format. NTFS is not recognized by MAC's and the MAC format not recognized by PC's.
You will need a program called Macdrive to read the disk.
Chances are you wont be able to use any of the files that that have been imported into FCP in Premiere Pro unless you export out to a cross platform codec eg. prores
Thanks for the advice. Someone else actually recommended the macdrive option. I'll look into it.
I'll let you know what I end up doing. I'm sure other people must have the same issue out there.
mac drive worked perfect. Evaluation version works just fine. I was able to upload videos no problem. Thanks so much.
If you have Snow Leopard NTFS support is hidden but actually built into the OS.
Here’s how to get read/write support for NTFS drives in Snow Leopard:
- In Terminal, type diskutil info /Volumes/volume_name, where volume_name is the name of the NTFS volume. From the output, copy the Volume UUID value to the clipboard.
- Back up /etc/fstab if you have it; it shouldn’t be there in a default install.
- Type sudo nano /etc/fstab.
- In the editor, type UUID=, then paste the UUID number you copied from the clipboard. Type a Space, then typenone ntfs rw. The final line should look like this: UUID=123-456-789 none ntfs rw, where 123-456-789 is the UUID you copied in the first step.
- Repeat the above steps for any other NTFS drives/partitions you have.
- Save the file and quit nano (Control-X, Y, Enter), then restart your system.
