I have a hard drive from a windows pc in a caddie. Can I format this so that it can be used as extra storage for my sons Mac laptop

Why not just try and see what happens...

should be able to just plug it in as long as its NOT formatted to NTFS, mac os cannot create, modify, or delete files on ntfs.

I don't need it for my Windows PC's so can be completly wiped to start again so if I just clean it completely will I have to do something so that it recognises the Mac?
