    Question Mark

    Hullo, folks!

    Quick question -

    I will be doing the switcheroo in the near future and was wondering what the sitch is for file sharing (using BT) with Mac OSX.

    Is it possible to watch ripped movies (4K, etc.) on a Mac (shared using the usual methods over the interwebs)?

    I suppose the software selection in the scene for Mac is inferior to that available for Windose users.

    Any input appreciated, thx.

    Yes, but you must pay $19.95 to Apple to unlock this feature

    All the programs you're used to have either equivalents or good substitutes on Mac OS.

    Hey anon,

    Thanks for replying!

    I'm guessing your 20-dollar comment is a jibe

    For the rest, will I be able to transfer my data from my Windose machine to my Mac, considering NTFS vs. FAT32?

    Well, it's Apple...

    Mac OS can't read NTFS out of the box, and the 4 GB file size limit on FAT32 is very likely to get in your way. Most people would use an exFAT volume (supported by both systems) as a transitional measure. Setting up a network share on your Windows computer and then copying everything over your LAN is another possibility.
