Welcome to the Mac Forums.

Your new iMac has Snow Leopard installed. SL has the ability to read and write to NTFS formatted drives, however, by default that ability is not turned on. You can turn it on with a free utility called "NTFS Mounter" download from here. I do not recommend the MacFuse NTFS 3G software as it has been known to cause problems.

There is one more option: Paragon NTFS, a driver from Paragon Software which will enable you to read and write to NTFS. Not free though. $19.95
