Gparted may be able to do this for you: http://gparted.sourceforge.net/features.php I'd select an MSDOS partition table rather than GPT. Use your Mac to format the HFS/HFS+ volume, and use Windows to format the NTFS volume. The HFS/HFS+ volume will be invisible to your Windows box, and the NTFS file system will be read-only on your Mac. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
