    I'm running macbook pro on 10.6.8 - paragon ntfs full purchased version is installed but it wont read drives that have been previously attached to windows.

    At first I thought it was just a niggle that the drive had to be formatted with mac to work on both, and when i added things off my mac to the drive that was also useable with XP I was delighted.

    Now having connected it back into the mac it's again unreadable

    When I pay for something I expect it to at least work properly

    so I'm using a new USB3 passport drive by Western Digital. I have a USB2 hard drive also by western digital in NTFS that isn't readable, although it was read fine until I installed the ntfs driver package.

    this is very irritating, is there a fix for this yet?
    I've read several threads and tried a few things but have just gotten more confused about what the issue may be.

    thanks for any assistance
