    What external disc format should I use?

    I have a external hard drive that I used to use it with Windows, but now that I bought my new Macbook I couldn't paste any file in it, so after some search with friends I realized it happens because the disk is formated as NTFS...
    How do I change it and, even more important, what format should I use?

    If you are going to use it Mac only, format in Disk Utility to Mac OS Extended (Journalled), and FAT 32 if both PC and Mac.
