    You're trying to use chalk on a white board. i.e.......

    Because the partition (not disk) is NTFS. Mac OS X cannot write onto this format, so you're out of luck.

    If you want to get files from Mac OS X to Windows I would suggest getting a USB Flash memory drive.

    Somehow I doubt it.. I can't image that Microsoft suddenly changed it's mind and released the specs on NTFS?
    But it would be a very nice feature, were Leopard to have it.

    I doubt it too, but there's a Linux NTFS module called Captive that usues the Windows drivers to write to the NTFS file system.

    Perhaps they would do something like this.
