    Hi,

    I'm newish here and have just got my self a 2010 Macbook Pro (first Mac ever :-))

    im trying to get the Mac to read my external hard drive but having a problem getting it to how up.

    It is formatted in NTFS thats why im using NTFS-3G as was told that it should work.

    Once i plug the drive in and after about 1/2mins i get this message.

    Tuxera NTFS could not mount /dev/disk1s1 at /Volumes/Itunes because the following problem occurred: tuxera_ntfs: Failed to access volume '/dev/rdisk1s1': No such file or directory tuxera_ntfs 2013.2 external FUSE 27 - High Performance NTFS Driver [built on Oct 14 2013 12:15:15 with USE_CBCIO USE_ALIGNED_IO USE_LOCK]

    Any idea people????

    If you need more info let me know.

    Thanks in advance.

    Do you need to just read from the drive or write to it as well? If just read, I believe that OSX can read ntfs drives without any special drivers. You do need drivers for writing to them though. Also, if there is no data on there that you need, you could reformat in another format (use FAT if it needs to be readable and writable between Mac and Windows systems).

    I don't know anything about this Tuxera NTFS, but I believe that Paragon makes an OSX NTFS driver that you could try.

    I do really what to read & write to/from it also the osx don't even find it just for so i can read it. Yeah there is files on it one of the reason i can reformat because i can't lose the stuff on the drive. Yep tried that program swell still no joy.

    Thanks tho
