- NT File System (NTFS)—Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows Server all use this as their native volume format. Once again Boot Camp supports running Windows from an NTFS volume, but Mac OS X itself cannot write to or
- start up from such a volume. Further, Disk Utility does not support the creation of NTFS volumes.
- You can add NTFS volume write support to Mac OS X by installing thefree and open source NTFS-3G and MacFUSE software bundle: http://macntfs-3g.blogspot.com.
ISO 9660 or Compact Disk File System (CDFS)—This is a common standard for read-only CD media. Note, however, that “Mac formatted” CD media can contain HFS-formatted volumes.
Universal Disk Format (UDF)—This is a common standard for read-only DVD media. Again, note that “Mac formatted” DVD media can contain HFS-formatted volumes.
