How to import media onto a hippotizer from a drive formatted for an Apple Mac Posted by Sumesh Varambhia on 14 July 2014 04:59 PM
Hippotizer Media servers are Windows XP based systems.
Often media created on Apple Mac OS X systems needs to be copied to the Hippotizer before it is imported into the Media Manager.
Suggested ways of getting data from a OS X formatted drive onto a Hippotizer are;
1-Using an external USB hard drive which is formatted using the exFAT file system format, copy the data from the Mac onto the USB drive and then connect that to a Hippotizer which has been updated to support exFAT (see below).
2- Use a 3rd party application which will let a Windows XP system read an Apple formatted drive such as Mac Drive. www.mediafour.com/products/macdrive/. This will give you the ability to see a Mac formatted hard drive in Windows.
3- If you have an Apple computer, network the two machines together, share a folder on one of the machines. Copy the data on to the Hippotizer system then upload the media.
