Default External Drive Mac and Windows Compatible

How do I make an external hard drive both Mac and Windows compatible? I've read a lot of stuff that says FAT32 is not a very good file system, but I'm not sure how else to do it. Does anyone have an external drive they use on both platforms, or any ideas? Thanks.

Default Re: External Drive Mac and Windows Compatible

FAT32 works fine for me. The other choice is to format for MAC and install MacDrive($50) in the PC so it can access the drive. You would not be able to actually run the session from that drive on a PC, but you could import to a drive on the PC and then "Save session copy in" and save that back to the MAC drive.
