Because the Canvio 3.0 Portable Drives now come with a NTFS driver for Mac®, you’ll be able to swap, store or access your valuable data between Mac and PC without having to reformat the drive (select models only).


I think Seagate does the same thing. I checked out some reviews of the NTFS driver that Seagate includes and found it was a bad iDea to use it, so I deleted it. I just transfered across the network from the peecee to the HTmini that the Seagate was attached to. Slow, but no crappy driver to deal with.
