Gparted may be able to do this for you: http://gparted.sourceforge.net/features.php I'd select an MSDOS partition table rather than GPT. Use your Mac to format the HFS/HFS+ volume, and use Windows to format the NTFS volume. The HFS/HFS+ volume will be invisible to your Windows box, and the NTFS file system will be read-only on your Mac. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>Seagate external hard drive> Related ressources: ForumSeagate external hard drive windows 8 stopped detecting ForumMy Seagate External Hard Drive is making clicking noises and won't connect to th ForumMy Seagate External Hard Drive is making clicking noises and won't connect to th ForumSeagate 2 TB External Hard Drive NOT Recognized on New Windows 7 PC ForumHow to change the Language used by seagate external hard drive ?
