Can't copy to NTFS drive after upgrading to macOS Sonoma

I frequently copy files to a 4TB NTFS external hard drive, but ever since I upgraded to Sonoma, I've been unable to write to external media, even memory sticks. Is there a problem with the upgrading itself? I do have a workaround, but it's not a good enough fix. My M1 MBA, together with an ancient Black Mac, two Windows laptops, and an R-Pi server, are all connected to a network. Any of these PCs allow me to plug in my external drive, create an SMB share, and Sonoma can write to the share without any issues. It is a workaround, but as I mentioned, not very good.

Many Mac users could encounter the same issue that the NTFS for Mac not working after upgrading to macOS Sonoma, you can fix this issue by updating the installed NTFS driver for Mac or changing another NTFS for Mac software.

NTFS for Mac software is a universal solution to read and write NTFS drive on Mac, Boot Camp Assistant is unavailable on Apple Silicon Mac, and you can't enable NTFS write via Terminal commands on macOS Ventura and later. Every time you upgrade macOS, it could break the installed NTFS driver for Mac, then, it prevents you from copying files from Mac to the external disk/

You can check the developer of the installed NTFS driver for Mac for updates, or install another professional NTFS for Mac software that supports macOS Sonoma/Sequoia such as iBoysoft NTFS for Mac.
