    Specs:
    Macbook (Santa Rosa) 250GB HD, 4GB RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo, 8x SuperDrive
    Unhappy Mount external NTFS drive
    I recently upgraded from Snow Leopard to Lion (10.7.4)

    With Snow Leopard I used to use NTFS-3G

    But since the upgrade when i plug in my external drive I get this warning...

    Now I cant even access my files to do my thesis for university!!

    Please do let me know of an alternative or a simple way to get NTFS drives to mount automatically when plugged in (same for USB drives)

    If I looked up the right thing the extension is only listed as compatible through 10.6. I would uninstall it and give Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X software. It's well-liked by many members here. It's not free ($19.95 US) but it has a free trial.

    Glad to help. I had not seen the steps in the article you linked to. Hopefully one of those two methods solves your problem.

    Just a suggestion if you decide to try both for comparison purposes try them one at a time.
