This is an old question, but in case you're still wondering, and in case others see the thread:

Many media servers can read NTFS, but the prefered format is Ext3 or Ext2 for flash drives. Just make sure of a few things:

A) Most servers will have no trouble with it, but anyhow make sure all files and directories are readable by all. Not only root.

B) This applies only to very very very old servers, but still, when you format the drive to Ext3/2 make sure to specify Inode size to 128. If you're using linux to format, just add "-I 128" to the mkfs command line.

C) Either put the DCP files in the root folder if there will be only one DCP in the Disk, or if you want to be more organized and/or will have more than one movie, create one folder with the title name for each and put the files inside. Do not create a hierarchy deeper than one folder deep.
