Western Digital My Passport how is data stored

I have a Western Digital My Passport (external hard drive) and I had been using it to back up my Windows XP machine. The XP machine's hard drive crashed, so now I am left with the My Passport drive.

"You won't have any trouble reading the drive using a Windows 7 machine.

You shouldn't have any trouble reading the drive on a Mac either. If the drive was formatted using FAT32, which is likely the default, a Mac can read and write just fine to it. If it's formatted NTFS, which is the Windows standard, it should be able to read, but not write."
