Again, I would have agreed before I moved to Linux. However, Linux will need a third party driver to read-write ExFat. OS X was the same until 10.6.5. (source)
And again, ExFat was working fine for me on Linux until...well, until it didn't. It didn't have a problem reading the drive, just writing to it. But again, that could have been something that I did wrong, and isn't the topic of the conversation.
Maybe I'll start a discussion about file systems. There are lots of variations out there, each with their own pros and cons. For this thread though, acido00 is best of leaving his drive with the NTFS file system as far as I can see.
You should definitely start a conversation on file systems. All the linux builds ive used based off debian or arch and read exFat fine. We have ubuntu and centOS servers at work and they all read and wrtie to exFAT drives fine. I dont know many Snow Leopard which is why its not a thought in my mind when I mention exFAT is supported.
im looking for to this file system dicussion thread!
