Default Sharing Data: Mac OS X <-> Windows


I'm new to Macs and I need a little help

I've transferred some files from my Windows OS computer to an external HDD. When I attach the external HDD to a Mac laptop, I only have the permission to READ, that is, I can't transfer data from the Mac to the exHDD and this really needs to be done

The Mac detects that the disk was formatted with a Windows file system.

How can solve my problem? I've look around the net and couldn't find the solution. Tried logging in as the super-user, but it didn't help either.

Thanks in advance,

After a bit of looking around, seems the free route is to grab the open source ntfs-3g drive and macfuse.

This may be of some help.
