Ntfs For Mac Snow
  1. Using Ntfs On Mac
Hi Ferry,
OSX itself can indeed only read from NTFS formated disks, not write to them.
Only through installing NTFS-3G or the commercial Paragons NTFS for Mac OSX gets write access to NTFS.
While there is a way to convert FAT32 to NTFS there is no way for the other direction apart from reformating the disk.
But for 'uploading' the music files you have on that disk you only need read access not write access.
Or do you plan to leave the files on the disk and not put them into the iTunes library ?

Using Ntfs On Mac

Communicate between Mac OS and Windows NTFS with ease! An excellent solution for end users, SOHO and enterprise alike, NTFS for Mac OS X 8.0 now provides full support for the latest Mac OS X Snow Leopard (in 32 and 64-bit mode), plus easy and transparent access to Mac-disks from Windows Explorer with the HFS+ for Windows feature. This is a release candidate version and a major upgrade from our previous open source NTFS-3G for Mac. Performance has been significantly improved along with other enhancements. We are pretty sure this is the fastest read/write NTFS driver you can have for Mac. We have successfully tested it on Tiger, Leopard and Snow Leopard.
