Macbook Pro (unibody) won't read NTFS External USB hard drive

Hi There,

I've got a late 2008 Macbook Pro (unibody) and expected it to be able to read an NTFS disk I've got formatted in a Cooler Master X-Craft enclosure. I'm connecting the disk to the laptop via USB 2.0 but the laptop doesn't recognise the disk no matter what i do.

The disk doesn't automatically mount when i connect it, nor can I see it when I open Disk Utility. I haven't had these issues with my USB sticks (although I think they're formatted as FAT32). I know there isn't a problem with the disk because as soon as I plug it in to an XP laptop, the disk appears straightaway.

I also installed NTFS for Mac OSX in an attempt to read the data on my external hard disk but have had no luck with this either.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks

It's ok- I found that this is a known issue affecting the CoolerMaster X Craft range and Mac OS X. I've resolved it with a patch provided on the CoolerMaster Website
