I am trying not to use any programs, the os should be able to handle 4GB files. bam, guess what my mac can but not my $1800 windows pc.

EDIT: yes, I have tried tera copy.

that's really strange. I can read NTFS all day on my macbook, and when I had my hackintosh running on this machine I could read NTFS partitions natively, 10.6.2. You might want to look into software that lets you read and write to NTFS, especially if you have a windows drive/partition.

He would have to use ntfs-3g for writes, but that is still kind of "experimental" since it was reverse-engineered. On OSX, he should be using HFS Plus. On Windows, he should be using NTFS. Fat32 is an old filesystem with limitations and issues.

I did it but for some reason I can't see that file system you are referring to (HFS Plus) when in disk utility on my mac

that's weird because hfs+ is native to OS X.

ohk I will tell you what I see right now on the mac osx disk utlity.

Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
Mac OS Extended
Mac OS Extended (Case-sensitive, Journaled)
Mac OS Extended (Case-sensitive)
MS DOS (FAT)
ExFAT - this one worked for me.
Windows NT file system (NTFS-3G)

HFS+ and Mac OS Extended are the same iirc.
