Yes if you partition the drive properly. To use it for Windows machines, you will need a MS-DOS partition which will also work with Mac. However the Mac formatted partition , which only works with Mac machines, is faster than the MS-Dos formatted partitions. The solution I recommend is to have several (at least 2) partitions formatted in different formats (using the Disk Utility in Mac or using Lacie's setup utility).

NO why contaminate this drive by using it for a PC. It has specific combatible software loaded on it designed for use with a MAC .
PC 's are not slick enough for this drive.
