Hi,
I've done an edit with FCP and convert the material to Quick Time Player and dump it to a FAT23 hdd with 1TB size. Now I need to playback the material on windows OS. The problem is windows cannot read FAT32 HDD. Any solution?

"How did you make a 1 TB FAT32 volume?"

I believe the capacity limit for FAT32 is 2TB. M$ deliberately placed a false 32GB limit in their own formating utility to force people to use NTFS, but the HDD manufacturer's software can be used to format a drive using FAT32 up to the 2TB limit. In most cases, you can customize the cluster size too rather than accepting the default. The slack space on a 1TB drive with a 32k cluster size would be huge.

XP has no problem reading FAT32 drives. We need more info about what is happening.
