The file system which is compatible with both the Mac and Windows machines is FAT-32 and for later model Macs and Win machines, ExFat. However, I do not recommend using FAT because it's a non journaling file system which means it's prone to errors and has limits. (FAT-32 file size limit of 4 GB)

I recommend that you continue to use NTFS on the external drives and install a driver on your Mac that will offer read and write capability. We recommend Paragon NTFS ($19.95) from Paragon Software. Here is the LINK.
