Re: HD compatible with both Mac and PC

Put the blank HD into a external case (USB2 or Firewire) or build it into your tower. Adjust the master/slave setting accordingly.

In Applications -> Utilities -> Disc Utility navigate to your hard disc. It will offer only Mac formats for formating. Chose "DOS format" or something like that as the table format. Then it will be possible to chose FAT-32 for formatting.

FAT-32 is fine for reading and writing on multiple formats but remember the 4 GB file limit.

Alternatively get and install a software called "Mac Drive" or something like that on Windows. That will teach Win to accept the HFS format of Apple hard discs. I know people in the professional media field using that soft successfully.
