-Is there anyway I can try it with my NTFS drive without using a USB flash drive and without formating?
Not that I know. But there are others around here using NTFS, maybe they will chime in. Fizze, for example, was using NTFS I think.
-What do you mean by “rsync”?
It’s a file synchronization tool. Like xcopy, only it just synchronized changed files. That way I keep my “master” iTunes on my mac and sync it to the slug for sharing with my SB.
It’s built in to mac, if that’s what you have, otherwise a good tool might be Unison to copy to a windows (samba) share from a windows box.
