    Hey guys -
    Quick Question. I have a WD My Passport 2TB External HD (the standard black ones) and I converted it from FAT 32 to ntfs on my XP Laptop. Everything went fine and it reads well on windows computers however now whenever I plug it into my macbook I get this popup:

    NTFS-3G could not mount /dev/disk2s1
    at /Volumes/MOVIES because the following problem occurred:

    dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libfuse.2.dylib
    Referenced from: /usr/local/bin/ntfs-3g
    Reason: image not found



    Does anyone know what this means and why I can't access the drive now on my macbook pro? Any potential solutions which come to mind?

    Thanks in advance and merry xmas : )

    To state the obvious NTFS-G is having problems with the volume. What version of the software are you using?

    My $.02 is that if you plan on using the drive on two different platforms, I'd choose a format that is compatible to both, e.g., exfat.
