Well, I have never seen an external device that didn't come pre-
formatted with some FAT variant... Not that external hard disks with
some other filesystem don't exist, I have a couple of ext3-formatted
external disks myself, but I did that on purpose. Did your friend
reformat the disk at some point?
Again thanks for the reply. If there's no other solution, I guess
tell him to convert the filesystem.
For now, VFAT is certainly the way to go for universal interoperability,
even though it sucks in many other ways.
