    It just needs to be reformatted into a Windows friendly file system.

    but... you should put the question on the title instead pointing you will ask a question

    yes, the external hdd are commonly advertised to work with macs just because.... it just needs to be formatted on compatible filesystem .. and how to format it, don't worry, windows will either prompt you to format it, or work right out of the box...
