    FAT32. Mac OS X (10.3.5+) has limited write capabilities to an NTFS volume.

    FAT32 has a 4 GB filesize limit. Just letting you know if you deal with big file sizes.

    If you are primarily using it on the Mac. Format it in Mac OS Extended, and use MacDrive to access it from the PC. It is a little slower on the PC but still pretty good.
