    I was wandering if there was a good, FREE program that lets you transfer files between NTFS and OS Extended. There is MacDrive for Windows but it's expensive.

    No, MS won't publish NTFS's specification so writing to it is troublesome with open-source utilities for the Mac/Linux. Apple does publish HFS and so MacDrive is the best choice (there are no free similar programs for Windows).
