I recently bought a seagate for mac 1tb external hard drive. When I connect to my macbook through the fire wire it works fine, but I also have media on my dell laptop which is running vista. When I connect the hard drive to that laptop using the usb cable vista doesnt recognize it. What am I doing wrong?

It must be formatted with FAT32 so that both the Mac and PC can read it.
