I have an eMac (1 GHz G4) with a lot of music on it. I just bought a new iMac, and staff told me they could not transfer content between the machines because the eMac's operating system was too old. If I buy an external hard drive, will it work for both?

Operating system on the eMac is OS X 10.2.8.


If the hard drive would have to be formatted differently for the 2 machines, is there a better way to get the music off the eMac? It's about 5,000 songs.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
