    time machine and an external drive
    hi

    I have a 24 inch imac running the latest os, leopard

    I am running time machine

    I use an external drive, a maxtor 500gb

    everything works fine in the mac OSX world

    NOW, I want to use this drive in the MS windows XP world

    but windows wont see it...


    How do I get the drive back to "neutral" so that my windows machine can see it.....
    I dont care about the data on the drive, I have another backup solution

    thanks

    al

    sorry for such the basic question, just want to be sure I dont brick the drive...


    gonna try to format it on OSX, hopefully that will help
