Can I use my new passport on both MAC and PC

I have a PC at work and a MAC at home, and I would like to be able to use it on both computer. In reading the manual it shows that you can format the drive to either MAC or PC, but doesn't show a set up to use it on both system. Can somebody help me.

Sure you can make the WD external drive to work for both Mac and PC.

All you need to do is to format it to FAT32.
