It needs to be formated to like Fat32 or Fat64 so you can use the EHD for both Mac & PC. Macs & PCs don’t get along here, if you have an EHD that works for Mac, it won’t work for PC & vice versa. Unless you have the Fat32 formatting, you’ll need a Mac computer to get your stuff off your EHD.

Do NOT reformat it or you will lose everything currently on your EHD!!

I think harddrives need to be formatted a specific way in order to be seen on both a Mac and a PC.  I think the default setting for Macs, you can’t see on a PC.  Is there a Mac you can hook it up to?
