    I have an external hard drive that I usually use for my PC and it is formatted in I believe NTFS. I was just wondering how I could get my Mac to accept NTFS if there is a way?

    Here is a more specific link to NTFS reading and writing on OS X.

    I used this to mount and read/write to a 300gb external drive formatted in NTFS. It required a reboot of my MBP, but it worked without me having to do anything other than plug it in, and start using the drive.
