Hi,

Simply looking for an application, preferably free, that will allow me to write to my NTFS external HD. I had this external as FAT32 before which was not problematic until I started downloading 720 and 1080 .mkv movies that were larger than 4gb. So I reformatted to NTFS which'll accept files larger than 4gb but realized that OSX don't be got da ability to write to NTFS.

Help?

Thanks.

FAT32
  • Read/Write FAT32 from both native Windows and native Mac OS X.

NTFS
HFS
  • Read/Write HFS from native Mac OS X
  • To Read/Write HFS from Windows, Install MacDrive or HFSExplorer
Oh, I thought Windows was unable to read/write HFS no questions asked. I think I'm just going to format the external hard drive to be HFS and use MacDrive which I already own.
