    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.
