    External Drive - Cant drag and Drop files onto it!
    Hey guys and girls.

    Now the proud owner of a nice new shiny 27" imac. My first Mac BTW .
    Having no luck dragging and dropping files from the hard drive in my puter to the external drive I have.

    I believe this is is related to the external drive being formatted in NTFS. I have tried NTFS-g (i think) but that install failed for some reason. Any one got any ideas on how I can correct my problem?

    The best option for working with NTFS drives out there is Paragon's NTFS for Mac.
    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.
