    Trouble with Frostwire and WD passport! HELP!!
    So i have a WD passport external HD. It is formated NTFS from a recent PC. The problem is I am trying to set up my Frostwire so that it automatically saves my downloaded music to me external. When I go to make the change and select the file in my Ext.HD that I want the music saved in the mac gives me a message that "I dont have permission to use this file". How do I do this to where I can use my external. I know it has to do with the NTFS format right?
    thanks

    Reformat it to FAT32 or HFS.

    Even better, format your drive, go to iTunes, and download your music legally!
