Default NTFS integration on Mac? - 04-09-2009, 06:28 PM


this question can probably be applied to any Mac, but this is specifically for the Mini:

How can one integrate NTFS write function on OS X? I tried NTFS-3g on the Mini and it worked one time, I copied the files over and then when I plugged the USB key back in, they were all gone, and the NTFS write function was gone.

Any way this is hardware specific? I can't get, for the love of God, my ntfs usb key to mount with ntfs-3g in Terminal, I keep getting resource busy errors, which led me to ask if this is a hardware specific problem?

Sorry for the ramble, my question basically is: how can I write to NTFS on the Mini?

NTFS-3G works for me. Are you using the Mac version, or did you manually install it from Try updating MacFUSE too; the latest version is 2.0.3.

I use and recommend the Mac version of NTFS-3G. It works great, if a little (lot) slow.
