    Thanks bro! Will try it later

    They generally cost more than Apple monitors.

    Viewsonic and others have special models for graphic design that are almost that expensive.

    "We love authoring code only once."

    That explains why Adobe's applications run like it's 1989. They're still using the same code.

    I really wish everyone could just get along. I also wish that Flash wasn't so thirsty.

    in case anyone wants to try this. snow leopard has unofficial support for NTFS writes.

    to make things easier, you can use sl-ntfs to enable this.

    i have been using MacFuse/NTFS-3g all this time, and i finally tried the builtin writes today. it's a lot faster. i copied 9.66gb from internal disk to external NTFS disk in 7 mins.

    Sorry not meaning to be spoonfed.. just new at this Apple stuff, will this benefit me if I have Parallels running on my machine? because I copy from MacOS to Windows but via Parallels. If this will make it better/faster I will want to try doing.

    bro... thanks for the link

    i currently have both the MacFuse and NTFS-3g installed. will do a transfer before and after the change and see if transfer times have great improvements.

    i have not tested but i suppose since windows already knows how to write to ntfs drives, it wouldn't need snow leopards ntfs write or macfuse. however i do recall either parallels or vmware fusion use some version of macfuse so that you can access the virtual ntfs disks from finder.

    let me know your timings. best is transfer a large file or bunch of files of at least a few gigs.

    Thanks for your reply, a little bit understand now... but since I have Parallels doing the tasks for me, I think I better not meddle with SnowLeopard then.

    snow leopard and parallels should be independent of each other, i have had macfuse/ntfs-3g enabled previously and now sl-ntfs while using both vmware fusion and parallels without any issue. more important is not to have macfuse/ntfs-3g and sl-ntfs enabled at the same.

    I uninstalled my Paragon NTFS and NTFS-3G before trying out the trick. Seems quite buggy. My data became corrupted and my system got the Kernel Panic. Now I know why it is OFF by default. Please use at your own risk.

    When I tried to unmount the disk then remount, the whole system becomes unstable. Copying small files seems ok but working off the NTFS drive causes my whole system to freeze. With Paragon NTFS, no doubt its pretty slow but I could work off my NTFS without any problems.

    IIRC, NTFS technology is proprietary to Microsoft only. I think Apple only has the license to read off NTFS drives in OS X.
