The WD specs page for this drive is unhelpful on the matter, but it is PROBABLY formatted FAT32, in which case you should be fine.

If its formatted NTFS, I'm not sure that's going to work. It might work, I'm just not sure about that.

You'll want to reformat it for Mac *after* you move your stuff over.
