    i have borrowed my friends external harddrive to copy some of files

    I *think* Mac OS X can read NTFS drives but I can't say what's going on here ...

    Have a read of this:

    Texas, where else?
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    Does the drive not show up in Finder at all?

    dooley, you may want to check this out also, maybe not if you're not having any issues with NTFS-3G, just another option

    Post 36 has the link to the current beta - it has been working flawlessly for me.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
