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
Thanks for the reply.

Wish i had found this site before i messed around with the HD etc...

Very usefull info.

Will look into the NTFS mounter for future reference too..

QUOTE Thanks
