    You can't since OS X can't write NTFS. Why do you want NTFS?

    Paragon NTFS should allow you to do that. It currently costs $20.
    I tried it to read NTFS drives with it and it works surpisingly well. I didn't try to format a drive as NTFS but it should be able to do it (it is listed as a feature).
