OS X :: Why Unable To Write To NTFS Driver (Pure X64 10.6 Kernel)

Feb 9, 2010

I would like to be able to have full read/write/format/repair ability for NTFS partitions, but every single solution out there explicitly says that it only works with the x32 version of Snow Leopard. This includes Paragon NTFS, NTFS-3g and the newest corporate version of NTFS-3g (which offers dramatically better file copy speed than the old free version).

Curiously, the final version of MacFUSE ever released (2.1.7b) the underlying driver that facilitates all of these NTFS filesystem plugins is 64bit and has an x64 kext that works just fine. Considering that the FUSE part of MacFUSE stands for Filesystem in User Space, shouldn't it be relatively easy to transition the userland part of the driver (the part that actually deciphers the filesystem) to x64?

Application :: Best Options To Write To NTFS In OS X

May 18, 2010

The best options for writing to NTFS that I found:
Paragon NTFS for Mac
Tuxera NTFS for Mac
Native write support
NTFS mounter

If I've missed any big then let me know but this has been what I've found. Ideally I'd use the native write support hack, but is there any benefit to using the other options? I wouldn't like to end up with corrupt files because I didn't choose the best option.

OS X :: Application That Allow Write To NTFS External HD (Fat32)?

Aug 6, 2010

Simply looking for an application, preferably free, that will allow me to write to my NTFS external HD. I had this external as FAT32 before which was not problematic until I started downloading 720 and 1080 .mkv movies that were larger than 4gb. So I reformatted to NTFS which will accept files larger than 4gb but realized that OSX don't be got the ability to write to NTFS.

OS X :: Cannot Write To NTFS Drive After Time Capsule Popup?

Jul 3, 2009

I was copying some files onto my NTFS drive (i have ntfs-3g installed) earlier in the night, and a few hours later I decide to connect my drive and copy some more files and I get this Time Capsule/machine popup asking if I want the drive to be a a timecapsule drive, I select cancel and start to drag n drop my files. But now the drive just says "Drive "xxx" Cannot be Modified". I tried everything, uninstalled MacFuse, Uninstalled NTFS-3G, reinstalled it all, and I still get this error, Why? It copies fine to my other ntfs drives but not on this one.

OS X :: Write On NTFS External Hard Drive - Won't Mount?

May 26, 2010

After a lifetime of owning PC's I finally purchased a MacBook Pro running OS X. I installed Parallels Desktop 5, Windows XP, and several Windows apps to have dual functionality. Now I need to write to my NTFS ext. hard drive where I backup everything. It has 800gb of space left, so it would be a shame to get a new one just b/c I have a Mac now. I first installed MacFuse and then NTFS-3G. Now when I reboot, the ext. HD won't mount at all. What have I done wrong?

OS X :: Enable Native NTFS Read / Write In Snow Leopard

Sep 12, 2009

I am sure many of you heard that Snow Leopard was supposed to have native read/write for NTFS partitions. Apple supported NTFS R/W in older SL builds but I guess decided to not to go with it for some reason, however support is still present. For this, you need to modify your /etc/fstab file to mount NTFS partitions for read and write.

First, uninstall NTFS-3G/Paragon if installed.
Open Terminal.app (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal)
Type "diskutil info /Volumes/volume_name" and copy the Volume UUID (bunch of numbers).
Backup /etc/fstab if you have it, shouldn't be there in a default install.
Type "sudo nano /etc/fstab".......................

IMac (Intel) :: Can't Write On External HD - Status Changed To NTFS Format

Aug 30, 2014

Some time ago I had a problem with my iMac. Turned out my internal HD was broken so I got a new one.

The problem is that after I got my iMac with the new INTERNAL HD back, I was unable to write data on my EXTERNAL (Toshiba) HD, which until then I had no problems with. When I checked the format of it, it now says NTFS. 

As I have more than 1 TB of data on it which would take forever to back up, is there another way to change it's status and write on it again? I was once able to do it, so I don't know where the problem is.....

MacBook Pro :: Erase Encrypted NTFS (Paragon) Driver Backup

Dec 5, 2014

Purchased a new 2T Seagate Backup Slim Drive and decided to encrypt my data on my MBP for the first time.

First mistake - chose a very complicated new 13-character ( including multiple special characters ).  Have tried to reconstruct the password with no luck!

Chose to go with "NTFS" driver that Seagate has licensed on a limited basis from Paragon software because I thought the flexibility of backing up both Mac and Windows files might be useful - new Seagate Slim Drive is about 25% full after 1 backup. 

"Erase and reformat" project  (unable to source to date very little info regarding Paragon NTFS file encrypted, file issues related to Apple devices.

Hardware :: Over 400MB/sec Write And 500MB/sec Read Driver-less Raid

Jan 10, 2011

searching for hardware raid box 4 or 5 drives, run across this tower T10-HR50

It claims over 400MB/sec write and over 500MB/sec read.

Is that possible with TWO eSATA connection transfer rate over 500MB/sec read ?

Any one experience this?

If I use this enclosure to convert M2TS to MP4/MKV file, would that give me any improvement?

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Write On SD Card

Mar 20, 2012

I have a macbook pro running Leopard 10.5.8 I have several SD cards that when I put into my SD card reader slot on the macbook pro I cannot write, delete or format. I can only read the card. I tried Disk Utility, formatting and partitioning the SD card are greyed out. Same with right-clicking "get info" on the card, I have only read access to all cards. Also the lock is not turned on, on any of the cards.I had a work around where I was copying everything from the card onto my harddrive, then popping the SD card back into my camera and having the camera format the card to erase everything. That worked fine until now I want to install a small program "magic lantern" onto my card for my camera, which i cannot do because i can only "read" the cards. is there a terminal command I can try to format the card so that I can read/write?

OS X :: Unable To Read NTFS Disk (Vista)?

Feb 5, 2009

I'm trying to copy from my Vista hard drive to my Mac hard drive. I'm getting rid of the Vista machine.

I took out the hard drive from the Vista and put it in an external enclosure that is USB attached to my Mac. The Mac is unable to read the drive.

I thought that leopard was able to read NTFS file systems?

It acts as if it doesn't even understand the partition table format on the drive.

Is there a simple way to get this to work? Does NTFS-3G help reading the partition table?

OS X :: Move Slew Of Files - Unable To Write?

Mar 28, 2009

I'm new to Mac and am trying to move a slew of files from my PC in preparation for a total switch. In this case, I had two folders with numerous subfolders that I wanted to make available on my iMac G5 (Leopard). I copied the folders to CDs, then transferred them to the Mac. But now I'm unable to write to those folders/subfolders. Apparently, my permission is restricted to "read only." When I go to Finder, then Get Info and try to change the permission, Mac will not recognize my administrator's password. The folders/subfolders were not password protected on the PC so I don't know what password Mac is looking for. I need full access to these files (R/W) on the Mac.

Software :: Unable To Work With CD Burner / Won't Write

Apr 20, 2010

I have Mac OS X 10.4.11. with an internal Pioneer DVR-106D CD/DVD burner. I "capture" opera performances on-line, edit them with CD Spin Doctor 2, send it to Toast where it is then burned to disc. I have been doing this for years with no problems. This past week I started receiving the following message "sense key=medium error. Sense code= OX73, OX03". I tried several different CDs and had three different brands which always did work but stopped working...Philips CD-R, TDK, Memorex Black CD-R. I had two Maxell CD-Rs and they worked. I purchased a cleaning disc hoping that cleaning the lens would correct the problem. Still none of the previously mentioned CD-Rs would work and I was unable to purchase additional Maxell discs locally. At Sam's Club I purchased Verbatim CD-R, placed one in the computer.....and it worked. For almost a week I've been able to burn CDs once more, until tonight. Again, I used the cleaner disc plus retried some of the other brands of CD with the same results...no burn. When I tried burning a disc with iTunes, I received the following message "The attempt to burn a disc failed. The device failed to calibate the laser power level for this media."

IMac :: UPS Power - Pure Sinewave Or Stepped?

Aug 16, 2010

I am getting ready to purchase an UPS for my 27" i7 iMac. After a considerable amount of research using mRoogle and Google, I'm still left with a decision to make. Perhaps the experts here can help me decide. For my personal needs, all I need is enough power to save my work and perform a graceful shutdown. I found the models with the right wattage that will suit this need. The real problem lies in the power that is supplied once the battery kicks in. Cheaper models, such as the APC BackUPS ES 750G ($84.99 on Amazon) provide a "stepped approximation to a sinewave". Some folks claim that the iMac power supply doesn't care for this type of input as it is not as efficient as a pure sinewave that is delivered every day by the power company. As a result, some people recommend getting a Smart-UPS, which provides a pure sinewave when the battery power kicks in. A Smart-UPS will also condition the regular everyday power ensuring that your computer always has clean power, whether it's coming from the power company or the battery. The problem is the cost. A Smart-UPS costs $350-$500 new or $200 +/- for a refurbished model. As mentioned above, I don't have a need to run my computer for an extended period on battery power. I just need to save my work and power down. If my computer is asleep, then the UPS will simply power it down. So I'm thinking that I can get away with the cheaper option and that it's no big deal if my iMac runs on a "stepped approximation to a sinewave" for the 2 minutes (or so) that it takes to power down. But then again, I'm not sure.

I always have to be looking out for the cable now, to make sure it's not trapped under my laptop when I set it down.Up until now I thought I was doing it all with a good cause — that the L-shaped connector is superior over the T-shaped.But it turns out that Apple are going back to the T-shaped one for their new Retina MacBook Pro. What am I to do?

OS X :: Unable To Write To External Hard Drive Anymore

Dec 10, 2009

I have a Toshiba 250GB external hard drive to back up pictures. I can write to it just fine. I also have a Fantom Drive 1TB external. I could write to it last week, but I turned it on this week and I can't write to it. I can still pull stuff off of it, but I can't write to it. What can be causing this? I have already installed MacFuse and NTFS-3G. It doesn't make sense to me that I can't write to it all of the sudden.
