    I don't really understand the question. You plug in the drive and drag and drop files onto it, same as on Windows. If the drive is formatted as NTFS, you'll need to install MacFUSE and NTFS-3G for read/write support.

    meaning. i just downloaded frostwire. and tried saving it to my external hard drive and it doesn't let me. it just says: "please drag image file to applications and open it from there" .. but i'd rather run everything from my e.d. so it doesnt take up space on my mac. :) thanx

    You must run the application from your Applications folder to open the app aka drag the image file.

    Once you download stuff from the application itself, THEN you can transfer the files to your external drive. The application won't take up much space.

    No, drag the contents of the image file. Once the application is in your /Applications folder, you can safely delete the .dmg file you downloaded.
