    please help ???
    i have borrowed my friends external harddrive to copy some of files
    When i connect it through usb into my macbook the hard drive appears on my desktop and shows that there is 400gb used and 100 free .
    Problem is i cannot see any of these files ?
    the hard drive is in windows nt filesystem .

    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.
    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.
