    NTFS-3G could not mount
    Well what now!!? Really do get quite weary of "error" messages that tell NOTHING about how to resolve a problem that has, apparently, confused my MacBook.

    Today's offering?

    NTFS-3G could not mount / dev / disk1s1
    at /Volumes/SEAGATE Expansion Drive because the
    following problem occurred:

    dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libfuse.2.dylb

    Referenced from: /usr/local/bin/ntf2-3g
    Reason: image not found

    =====

    Same found, with only name change from "Seagate" to "CF_StorageN" when I attempted to connect my Click-n-Save backup.

    =====

    So, please, what's going on (or, more correctly, not going on) and is there a solution?

    Thanks.

    Better yet, dump NTFS-3G and instead invest $19.95 and buy Paragon NTFS from Paragon software. NTFS-3G is buggy and has been known to cause corruption. You can download Paragon from here.

    Another vote for spending the $20 for Paragon.
    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.

    You get what you pay for. In other words, another vote for Paragon NTFS for Mac.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Thanks for the responses. Still don't know what NTFS is, though...

    NTFS is the native format for Windows hard disks. The Mac has support built in for reading NTFS volumes, but it does not have write support. People often install MacFUSE with NTFS-3G (the component that is failing for you) to add this support. It sounds like you or someone else who has been in contact with the computer has installed MacFUSE with NTFS3G.

    We recommend using Paragon's NTFS for Mac (a commercial, pay-for product) as opposed to the free MacFUSE with NTFS3G, which is known to have issues.
