    I'll get my Babe-Alesis HD24 soon,waiting for shipping.
    I'm wondering that is the Alesis HD24 do have the 'Hard Drive Formating Function' instead of Format on Computer??

    IF that's no Format H.Drive Function in the HD24,so what format s'ld i do for the H.Drive in Mac for the HD24??

    There is a format hard drive function.

    If you want to use the drive with your computer/DAW, you simply connect it to the Fireport, then import the files into your computer's drives. You do NOT format the HD24 drive with your computer's OS. You cannot simply open the file folder, drag and drop files. They are imported and converted from the Alesis drive files to your drive as AIFF, WAV, SD2, DIG/SD.

    Yeah. As long as it is a supported drive, you will be good to go. Buy extra hard drive carriers, $20 a pair most places.
