    Dabs lists this as only compatible with windows.

    Does this therefore mean you can't use it on a mac?

    Has anyone got it running with a 2012 MBA?

    Pity if i can't given it's £76.99 delivered at the moment.

    TIA

    Maybe you can reformat it using Fat32 and than it will be compatible with MAC.

    I have one of the Seagate "Expansion" 1TB USB3 drives.

    The first thing I did was to format it for OS X ... it works great with my Air.

    I suppose they list it as Windows only because it may be formatted NTFS out of the box. There is also some Windows only backup software on the disk when you get it.
