I'm having some trouble with a external hard drives. I can share files freely with no issues from a PC to PC, but when I'm on my Mac I only have read only permission. What would cause this? Any ideas?

This is the only solution I could find.
NTFS-3G for Mac OS X
Maybe someone else knows more than me I'm not a wiz by anyone's standards. I guess some files are formated in FAT32 and some NTFS, from what I gather OSX can't write in the NTFS format.
