format external USB drive for Mac or PC?

My girlfriend just bought an external 500MB USB drive.

She plans to use it both on her PC and MacAir.

She will be storing photos on it, but will want to acces it and work on it on both platforms.

Question:

Should the drive be formatted for PC or Mac?

Should she format it at all, since these drives are sold preformatted?
