    i have an external hard drive which i used before with my windows-based laptop. if connected to my Imac i noticed that the files can not be deleted or even renamed. it's NTFS formatted drive. what should i do to allow these options/actions on this external drive with my Imac.

    MacFuse and NTFS-3G will give you write capabilities with NTFS formatted drives under Mac OS X.
