Format it using exFAT, FAT32 or NTFS if you want on your Windows computer, and you will able to work with it in Mac OS X too.
See below FAQ about the advantages and disadvantages of the file systems.

Don't format the hard drive without first backing up any software you need from the external (it sounds like the software is coming pre-installed on the drive?) because formatting it will wipe all your data. If you have re-install discs for the software, however, feel free to.
