Adding NTFS Write support on Mac OS X

I’ve western digital external usb hard drive. Unfortunately Mac OS X doesn’t support writing to NTFS formatted partition due to some legal issues; Although I was surprised by that. But luckily there are opernsource tools available which can be used (at your own risk ;)) to enable NTFS read-write support. By default it supports writing to FAT/FAT32 partition.

The open source tool called  NTFS-3G will solve your problem. Currently it supports 10.5 & 10.6. I was able to use it successfully on OS X 10.5.  Another commercial production in case you need 24*7 support – Tuxera NTFS fo Mac

Download the DMG Here NTFS-3G.dmg
