How to Read and Write NTFS External Hard Disk on your Mac OS


Previously, I’m not able to updates or copy any files from my Mac to my old NTFS external hard disk.  My another new external hard disk works well as I had converted to FAT format after I bought it. But, I don’t think that is a good idea for me to reformat my old NTFS external hard disk as it still not solving the problem.

In this case, I found out users around Internet already came up with binary version (in DMG) of ntfs-3g, which enables my Mac book to load NTFS with read and write capability. Ok! You can try it if you want to.


According to their websites. NTFS-3G is the leading open source NTFS driver that is ported into numerous platforms. NTFS-3G is also included in hundreds of distributions. The Development has been ongoing since 2006.

System requirements:
• Mac OS X 10.4/10.5/10.6 (10.6 requires that you do not use the 64-bit kernel), running on an Intel or PowerPC computer.

The package has been tested with Mac OS X 10.4.11/PowerPC/Intel, Mac OS X 10.5.8/PowerPC and Mac OS X 10.6.2/Intel/64-bit Intel.
