Please forget NCU. NCU is poorly written and only works on MacOS
classic and Windows. NCU doesn't handle unicode text because these
OSes don't handle it natively.

There are other ways to transfer data. Just like Newtons won't
survive without ATA cards, Newtons won't survive without a good
transfer/synchronization tool.
