Bought an 80gb HD the other and am using it with an ADS PYRO drive case linked up to an iBook.

In a few weeks time I'll be returning the iBook to it's owner and so we be using the drive on my PC.

What's the best way of formatting a Mac drive to NTFS?

Will Partition Magic do it on my PC?

many thanks

Just plug it into your PC and format it. Should be as easy as that.

You could also use disk manager to do it.
