    Hi Guys,

    Im trying to ditch my 200gig harddrives data onto a Mac so i can reformat it to HFS+ however im stuck at this annoying point, for some reason when i goto the folder that contains all the files, it shows nothing.

    I checked on a windows machine and the files are there, i set the permissions to everyone but no dice, any ideas?

    I was tempted to recommend that, but the thing is Mac OS X has had NTFS read support for a while that works pretty well. I'd give ntfs-3g and macfuse a shot, but I don't think it's why you're having that problem (which I've got no clue about).
