• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

USB harddrive help please...

Ok, I have me powerbook and I bought an internal 200gb harddrive that I decided to not to install in me XP desktop. So i decided to buy and harddrive enclosure kit to make it external. I have the kit but my question is this, in order for the harddrive to work with both my XP machine and my PB should I first format it to the XP machine first? Keep in mind that the harddrive hasn't touched either one yet...Reason I ask is that all 40gigs of my music or stored on the XP and none on me PB. Any help and/or steps wud be appreciated.

I would format it on the XP machine just to be safe. The last few disks I've Win formated on my Mac have worked fine on the Win machines, but you never know.
