It ships formatted in exFAT, which makes it compatible with most devices right out of the box, but I do recommend formatting the drive to the file system that benefits you the most, for optimal speeds and stability. ...I basically filled up my Mac and iPad drives with photos until I could get home. It worked but I wish I had gotten this little drive a bit sooner! "
