I was using Tuxera NTFS for a while on my external drives but then my trial ran out.
So then I installed ntfs-3g from macports.
When I connect my external drive, OSX automatically mounts it, but it is read-only.
But if I unmount the drive, and use ntfs-3g to mount the drive in a terminal, then I can get normal read/write access to it.
The problem is that Finder doesn't list it in the list of drives that it sees.
How can I get Finder to recognize the drive?
How can I get OSX to use the ntfs-3g program that allows read/write access instead of whatever it normally uses when connecting an external NTFS drive?
If I let OSX automatically mount the drive and type mount, this is what I get for the external drive.
/dev/disk2s1 on /Volumes/Expansion Drive (ntfs, local, nodev, nosuid, read-only, noowners)
The problem is the part that says "read-only." How can I remove that?
