Even if the drive was formatted NTFS, OSX will read it, just not write to it out of the box.
Initially when I used the drive, I had installed it into an open bay on my Dell XPS, and was able write to it okay. I was able to read and alter docs etc. But when we sold the PC and moved, thats when I put it in the enclosure. After reading the NexStar 3 documentation, it doesn't seem to state that it has a drive size limit. When I asked the techs where I bought the hard drive enclosure, they said that NexStar is what they recommend most for the WD Caviar drives. I don't have the original PC. Any ideas?
