Is this hard drive compatible with Mac and PC, if not do you have any that are compatible with both?

Asked by: aer1812
This is compatible with Mac and PC however due to file format differences between Mac and PC you will not be able to use one hard drive on both systems without formatting the drive each time you want to change to the other system.
