Is there anyway I can remove the MAC formatting from my hard drive so I can view it on a PC?

I bought an external hard drive for all of my pictures and videos. While it was plugged into my computer, I was asked if I wanted to use this hard drive for Time Machine (To back-up my stuff). I said yes. Now, I am not able to share any of the photos and videos I have on there unless I bring my laptop with, or remove them and put them on a flash drive, then take the flash drive. Is there anyway to fix this without removing everything off of my hard drive or buying a new one? I am even considering either using a flash drive to back up, or not backing up at all. Thanks!

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
