    I'm thinking about getting a Mac this week and getting rid of my PC and I'm curious from other Mac users how compatible is the Droid? Is mounting easy? What about. Zip files for themes and roms? Any help is great!

    (This is not a thread about Macs over PC's or visa versa)

    No problems here, either. Mounts fine. Drag and drop pics, movies, pictures.

    I am typing this right now using a MacPro tethered to my Droid using PDANet. It all works fine together!

    I use an adapter to plug my SD into a usb slot to format. I think FAT32 is the proper format. I can't recall because I haven't formatted in a while. The rest of the time I just mount it through the Droid when it's plugged in using USB.

    The only thing I can't stand is how Macs leave little files like ".< TRASH >" on the SDcard. Macs do that on every portable media device you plug in though.

    I haven't WiFi Tethered yet. I'll test it in a bit.

    I second everyone here, no hay problemas whatsoever! wi-fi tethering... awesome! it's all about the drag and drop... doesn't get easier than that.

    The best thing is, you can create a main folder on the computer and call it like droid or something, and anything you download related to droid save it in there... no clutter.

    ditto what everyone else said. i have tethered both my iMac & my old iBook, used PDAnet for both and i just mount the card with the usb cord to my droid. no problems formatting either.:)
    oh, i also transfer photos & videos to my iMac via bluetooth.

    i don't really do much bluetooth to be honest, to me, it's all about the plug in, drag-n-drop.
