We have a Western Digital external HD that we bought for our home computers--which are all PC. Problem is my son has to deal with Mac equipment at school.
The movies he is downloading to the WD HD from our home computers--will he be able to upload them to the Mac at school and edit them? Will he then be able to download the edited movies to the WD HD, bring them home, upload them to the PC, edit them there, download to the WD, take them to school, upload to the Mac and edit them, etc.?
I have seen things about an issue here, and one other time he did have some trouble with the Mac at school but we're not sure where the problem lay. The online explanations I have seen--even on the West Dig customer support web site--have not explained it in a useful way.
If he is going to run into a problem, what should we do to head it off? These photos and movies are a semester-long project.
