    I've got a second hard drive in my mac and I want to have my media and documents easily accesible. What is the best format to use for this drive so writing/reading isn't a huge hassle?

    Also is there any format that OSX and Windows both uses besides fat32 that is native?

    Thanks for your help.

    Nope. But, with some tweaks, both can use NTFS. See Mac Rumors Guide on Hard Drives.
