  1. you can either format your hp drive to fat32 (older file system) but the maximum file size will be limited to 4gigs or you can use Mac Paragon which will install NTFS (file system) drivers so you can read and write to the drive

  2. Or, more sensibly if you are only going to use it on a Mac, use disk utility to format it as an OS X Extended drive. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3509

    Here is another NTFS option..But I would just reformat the drive to HFS
