  • After tinkering with it, I have finally figured it out. Being that I dont have the "MS-DOS Fat32" feature, I googled a solution and found out that the "Ex-Fat" feature makes the Hard Drive compatible for both Mac and Windows...

  • I believe it can only be formatted for one, Mac or Windows. My drive is currently formatted for Windows, and I can access it from a Mac as a "guest" which still allows me to drag files from my Mac to the drive, and copy files from the drive to my Mac.
