Windows 64 to Mac My Book Essential

I have a 3TB My Book Essential external drive and am moving from Windows 7 64 bit to a new Mac. Will the Mac recognize this drive without reformatting so that I can use it to move my data seamlessly? It is formatted as NTFS which, I believe, came formatted by WD.


The Mac will recognize the drive and you will be able to transfer the files to the Mac

sine formatted NTFS is read only so to write to the drive you will need to format or use and application like this one :
