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

Have a read of this:

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.
