MAC cannot read Flash Drive

Here's an on going problem with MAC computers when you share flash drives across multiple operating systems. On Windows the flash drive works, then on MAC, you just can't get MAC to understand what device your putting in and to read those files.

Solution:

It's simple, wipe out the flash drive completely in Windows, then go to My Computer -> click on Flash Drive -> Properties and reformat the Flash Drive to exFAT.  Once all is done put the file your trying to read in MAC back into the Flash Drive and then try reading it using the MAC. You should instantly see MAC recognizing the Flash Drive and the files and your all done.
