Many Mac users know that NTFS drive is read-only on Mac. Because NTFS drive is mounted as read-only mode on Mac. It's terrible for a Mac user who want to write something in a NTFS drive. And the worst thing is that NTFS drive even can't be mounted and recognized on Mac sometimes.
This may happen to us. And it truly happened to my friend. He has a 320GB NTFS-formatted external hard drive that works fine on his crappy Windows laptop. But when he pluged the NTFS hard drive and connected it to his new MacBook that he had purchased to replace the old PC, it didn't work. The NTFS drive didn't mount on his MacBook but could be seen under disk utilities. Of cuarse, he couldn't read that NTFS drive, let alone write to that NTFS drive.
So, what will you do if you face with this situation, and what will you do if you want to write NTFS drive after it can be mounted and read successfully?
