Last sat I went to my friend place as I was getting external Flash for my E-300 CAM and we exchange some of the photography knowledge. He showing me some of his photo in his Macbook Pro and he ask me why can’t copy anything to his portable hard disk? I was wondering should be file system issue, so I ask him to show me and when the drive mounted it was only stated read-only.
Not sure if it really not support to do read-write on Mac as I was not a Mac user, but I manage to find the solution for him and thanks to Google that really useful search engine nowadays. The software that I found is NTFS-3G release by Tuxera and the installation was easy and fast.
TFS-3G is a stable read/write NTFS driver for Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenSolaris, QNX, Haiku, and other operating systems. It provides safe and fast handling of the Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 file systems.
