Re: Portable hard drive for use on both Mac and PC?

I only use Win 7 so I don't know if this will work or not but I turned it up with a quick Google search.  Apparently Macs can read a Windows NTSF formated hard drive but not write to them.  To do that you need to add an application.

Enable writing to NTFS hard drives on Mac OS X
