    Just recently I decided to format my Western Digital 1TB external HD from FAT32 to NTFS, due to NTFS having capabilities to transfer single files bigger than 4GB. So before formatting it, I transferred all the data onto my MacBook Pro and then did the full NTFS format of the external HD.

    Now the problem is I CANNOT transfer the data back onto my external hard drive because apparently Mac OS can only read the NTFS files and not write on there.

    I do not wish to re-format my external HD back to FAT32, therefore I'd like to ask you guys whether something could be done about this??? (Btw, I've seen some site like the NTFS-3G site but I'm not sure if that applies to me and how to use it anyway.) How could I transfer data back and forth from the NTFS external HD to Mac OS??

    Hasn't given me any trouble. Install MacFUSE followed by NTFS-3g and you should be fine.
