Customer Question
I have an Iomega...

I have an Iomega Prestige Desktop Hard Drive. built and purchased in 2012. I have also a large i& desktop PC used for complex work and to store music using iTunes (updated to the latest version) . My PC runs Window v7. Recently purchased a 1 TB Mac Mini as a server in my home theater. Almost exclusively for music but I can envision storing some video. My problem. The Iomega says it can handle both PC and Mac files but it must be reformatted for MAC. I get conflicting information on whether or not I can do a PC copy, store then read from the copy onto the MAc-Mini. I am dextrous with the PC but pretty stupid with the MAC. Will my idea work and if not what should I do? I have completely lost faith with the high end music stores who want to sell me expensive servers and CD juke boxes. ANy help is appreciated. Thanks.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update your iTunes?

Tuesday of this week. I have version 12.7.2.60

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

I think I said it all.

No. I went to Best Buy Geek Squad and they showed me exactly what to do. It works fine as long as I don’t want to update the hard drive from the MacMini: both computers can read the PC native file format so I am good to go.
