Time Machine and Western Digital
Jan 1, 2009

Happy New Year everyone!!!

How can I backup my files from my iMac to my Western Digital external hard drive, and then have my laptop PC read these files? It's important that my laptop PC can recognize the usb WD hard drive when I connect to it and so that I can browse the files. Just purchased the My Passport Western Digital 250Gig external hard and it already has some pre-installed factory files on it. When I run time machine on imac and select the western digital drive as the backup, it tells me that I need to format the disk to be able to perform the backup!

Any help on this please???
