    I cannot put files in my flash drive for some reason. How do I change this setting? My flash drive format is Windows NT File System (NTFS).

    You can't do that because it's formatted as NTFS. Reformat to FAT32, and you will be good to go.

    FAT32
    • Read/Write FAT32 from both native Windows and native Mac OS X.
    • No individual file larger than 4GB.
    NTFS
    HFS
    • Read/Write HFS from native Mac OS X
    • To Read/Write HFS from Windows, Install MacDrive
    • To Read HFS (but not Write) from Windows, Install HFSExplorer

    See below on how to enable writing to NTFS formatted volumes via Mac OS X and NTFS-3G.

    Or look above, as that bloody bastard was microts faster than this nice guy. ;)

    Like those found at Panama Channel I suppose? It only takes three to 17 million cycles I suppose to sometimes get a response here. Am I glad I'm still in my pre-teens. But that will be over soon as I enter my puberty in the coming decade or so. That's when I start to get crazy I suppose, at least my younger sister told me so. Hmm, must be looking for secondary schools now I suppose.


    In all honesty, I'm older than I not look, but that is matter of another one of those discussions surrounding virii or maybe those about what is better, bread or sliced cheese.
