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?

Thx

Haydyn

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.
