I finally got my external hard drive and created 2 partitions with disk utility
- one is the mac os x HFS+ for my time machine
- the other one is NTFS-3G that I installed using the NTFS-3G driver and macFuse.

I can write and read the NTFS-3G inside my mac but when I plug it in my windows computer, it doesn't even show up on the list of drives.

Is there something I have to install on the windows for me to use the NTFS-3G partition or it should automatically be found by windows XP ?

Hmmm. I've had no problems using NTFS-3G myself, but I formatted my partition using Windows, not Disk Utility. At the moment, I can only suggest reformatting it in NTFS using Windows. Perhaps there's some subtle bug or incompatibility that keeps Windows from recognizing a partition formatted using NTFS-3G.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu). Also advise us if you have any antivirus or "cleaning" software installed on your Mac. If you are using MacKeeper, you are hereby advised to uninstall it.
