    Hello everyone, I'm new to these forums so hopefully I'm posting this in the correct forum. I sold my Sony Viao last week and copied all my important files on a 250 GB WD Mybook drive. Now the thing is formated in NTFS and I know that NTFS is a windows thing. I have some video/pictures/music and documents(excel/word) that I would like to move to my Macbook Pro which I will be buying next week. Whats the best way to do this? would really appreciate your help. I think I have around 50-60 GBs that I need to move.

    By default you can READ NTFS drives.
    If you want to write to it look at the above post.

    so I would be able to copy my files into the new MBP to work on them with no issues, right?
