    Hi there, i have a SD card and a USB Flash Drive which is formatted in MS DOS mode.

    It works fine on PC computers, i can read and write
    however, when i plug it into my mac, it can only READ but NOT WRITE.

    What do i do?

    Thanks

    Are you sure you didn't format it in NTFS? OSX can't write to NTFS, just read it.
