    Hey, my friends windows laptop was half destroyed but the hard drive was completely fine, I removed it and put it in an enclosure and I'm now trying to mount it to my iMac and transfer my friend's pictures, music ect.

    [​IMG]
    It has two partitions of 8.30gb and 151gb, I'm assuming the 151gb is where all the photos ect are stored? The 151gb partition is NTFS, will I need a windows computer to mount it? Hard drives ect really isn't my strong point! If someone could help it would be greatly appreciated

    Look into MacFuse or NTFS-3G so you can read it.

    You shouldn't need anything to read an NTFS disk. OS X will read them just fine, you would just need a program like NTFS-3G to write to a drive.

    If its not mounting then there is probably something wrong with the drive. It's worth trying on a windows machine probably though. Sometimes I find trying to access it on one and then another somehow makes it able to mount.
