Old Hard Drive

I have got an IDE hard drive which I removed from my old computer and I want to use to store files on as an external hard drive, somewhat like a memory stick/USB drive/flash drive.
At the moment it has got Windows XP installed on it and there is nothing I want/need on the drive.

If I was to delete everything on the drive and reformat it, could I start putting files straight onto it or would I need to install some other software on it to allow for storing the files (mostly will be photo's).

I have got a USB 2.0 to IDE/SATA adaptor to connect it to my computer.
