    Hi guys, I'm a mac newbie and it's one of those days where I wanted to transfer files onto my WD external drive. I downloaded NTFS-3G, installed it and ran the application. After installing it and plugging my WD passport into it my mac system showed this error message :

    NTFS-3G could not mount /dev/disk2s1at /Volumes/My Passport because the following problem occurred:

    /Library/Filesystems/fusefs.fs/Support/fusefs.keyt failed to load - (libkern/ktext) link error, check the system/ kernel logs for errors or try keytutil(8). the MacFuse file system is not available (71)

    That's really not my language. I don't have a single clue of what it means. I need help on this definitely. Is my mac corrupted or is it my external HD. Help please ? Thank you.

    According to this, NTFS-3G doesn't work on the 64-bit kernel (which is the default). You'll need to change to 32-bit.

    I use Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X on my 2011 MacBook Pro. It works well and is not too expensive.
    It's Lion compatible as well, so you won't run into any issues when upgrading.

    I tried multiple other solutions before deciding to purchase Paragon's solution, but none of them seemed to work very well. Tuxera NTFS worked, but there were a lot of issues (deleting files, speed, etc.).
