I got my MBP recently (13 inch base maodel ) and i got a new 1 TB WD External Hard disk yesterday. As i have a windows desktop, i want my HD to work on both ( and it cant be FAT 32 , as i have many files which are greater than 4GB ). So, i tried NTFS. I installed, ntfs -3g and the mac fuse. But still i couldnt get it working. When i plugin my HD it is saying : could not mount my HD because Library/Filesystems/fusefs.fs/Support/fusefs.kext failed to load - (libkern/kext) link error; check the system/kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8). the MacFUSE file system is not available (71) But i have both Mac Fuse and Ntfs -3g Installed. And also, then i installed the paragon software for NTFS (Trial version ) and it is great. But the originall version is about 20$( i can afford it, but i am just checking, if any one has got it working for free.) SO any sugesstions ? Should i gor for paragon full version ? Or anything to get it done free ? And also i read in other posts that Ntfs-3g ( Free version) is not reliable and slow. So, did any 1 use paragon ? Is it reliable ? Should i go for it ? Thanks in advance..
