How to write in NTFS file system?

Hello everybody!
I have a MBA with Mountain Lion 10.8.2, and an external hard drive formatted with NTFS file system. I have already tried MacFuse and NTFS 3G but it didn't work.
Is there another way to make the Mountain Lion write in NTFS? I was looking for it on Google but I found no solution!

Thanks a lot for the help!

The trial version works well too? Or just the paid version?

Thank you!

To be honest, it came free with some Seagate hard drive I bought a while ago. Never used it for more than that one day, but it worked well. Much faster than NTFS-3G and much safer than Mac OS X's disabled NTFS write drivers.

And what about free solutions, do you know any other? Or How to do with NTFS 3G works fine?

Thanks!

I use and always used Tuxera. Best solution there is, imo.

Or format to exFAT as it's compatible with recent Windows & OS X

The only free solution I know of is NTFS-3G. But I don't know if that works with Mountain Lion.

Thanks all of you for the help.

I think first I'll try tuxera, and after the trial period either I buy the license or format to exFat. I give up of NTFS 3G!

Do you know if exFat is compatible with Linux too?

Thanks!

I'm sure there's support for exFat in Linux or it can at least be added without much problem. Depending on the distro you use, it might already be in there.
